    I pray that the Estes family will be comforted during this difficult time. I went to High School with Harold and new him when he was involved with the Auto Body Shop Business. I always enjoyed his sense of humor and friendliness. I also will always miss his smile and his mannerism.
    RIP my friend and may your memories live on.

    I sure will miss Harold. He was so kind to me the few years that I knew him. It comforts me and hopefully his family with knowing how much he loved the Lord. I will miss Harold very much.
