As I read the obituary for Mr. Emmons, I was truly impressed by the outstanding and full life he lived. Never-the-less, 84 years of life is still much too short. How thankful we are that our grand Creator, Jehovah plans to restore his original purpose and make it possible for all mankind (including our loved ones we have lost in death) to live forever under perfect conditions. (Matthew 6:10; Job 14:14 & 15). Please accept our condolences as you deal with the loss of Mr. Emmons and contemplate the hope of seeing him once again.

Anna May, Thinking of you at this time of loss. We thought a lot of Harold. He was a good man. His service to the Masonic Lodge and Community of Scotland, Arkansas will always be remembered. Our prayers are with you.

I am sorry to hear about Harold's passing. Many of my childhood memories are of me playing at my Aunt Sue's house and talking to Harold through the fence. In fact one of my favorite baby pictures is of Harold pushing me on the swing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
