    As usual, Harold and Helen never missed a special moment. This was our son, Zak’s, UNCW graduation in 2018

    I will miss my incredible father-in-law who took the “in-law” out of Father. I am so grateful for all of the wonderful memories you have left me to cherish for the rest of my life.

    Love, Greer
