Our journey was a long one over 60 years. Through Bathurst Heights, music, Metro Works and roads, music, trips to Algonquin Park, visits to Paudash Lake, music, wives, kids and friends and across distances, (Alberta to Ontario) . Through it all we kept in touch. Now that journey seems much too short. One more story, one more song, one more hug.
Goodbye my dear friend.
Your Buddy al

I will be forever grateful to him for convincing me to share the vocals on his final album, " Shades of Love ".
To my Music Man.....I hope you will fill the heavens with your music my friend.
Always your biggest fan.

Harold was my first boss when I started with North York in 1968. He was the nicest person and a good friend. I always looked up to Harold because of all he accomplished not only at the office but in his personal life. His attention to detail in whatever he did is commendable. We lost contact over the years but I will always cherish the time we spent working together and his friendship after I left North York. Raymie and I wish you, his family, well. Harold had a very great impact on alot of people professionally and personally. Thank you Harold.
