Remembering how Harold and we're good friends in school. We used the play a lot of 1 On 1 basketball in the old Rawson gym in Junior high.I believe we were all 12 years in school together.

For a few years he would invite me to come home in the bus ride, have dinner with you and family, and go to the school for a game night.

Sorry we lost track of each other later.
