    Malese and Emmett, the Summey's have always been like family to us since we were neighbors. I have tons of memories of Harold and one you I will share with you now is that you could set your watch by the time he checked the mail every day .... him and that little red pickup truck. Plus the time I wrecked my car, he came by moments later and went to call for help for me, then checked on me the next day. He was a very sweet man. I will miss Harold and I'm sorry to hear of his passing. Since I live so far away I can not make it to the funeral. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I love you both. Tammie

    I had the pleasure of working with John as both a CNA beside him and later as a RN in charge of him. Wonderful man, I will miss seeing him out and about in that faded red truck of his. Deb Hudson
