Deepest condolences to the Jurgena family.  Harold always asked how our father was (Dick Graden) when we ran into each other.  Harold and Dad were good Irving grade school friends back in the 1930's.  Harold always had a smile on his face and exhibited a positive attitude.  One of those GREAT guys who will be missed.  Cherish the memories!
