    On behalf of the entire Gregoire family, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies on the passing your beloved Harold. So many memories of my parents involved them sharing with us stories of their dinners with you and your husband & Moie and her husband. Please know how much your extended friendship with them has affected our lives. I cannot ever pretend to say I know what you are going through, as I cannot imagine how this must feel. We are here for you and will keep you in our thoughts and prayers, now and in the many days to come.
    Steve & Connie Gregoire
