Fond memories of Harold and Lori. My mother, Marge (VanderSchuur) Sikkema was Harold's cousin. My grandpa Minard was brother to his father Jake. We visited with Harold and Lori often and had enjoyable times with them. Too bad family reunions are a thing of the past. We no longer know our relatives. There is rejoicing in heaven with his arrival!
