Barbara and family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember you and Harold at all the Rainbow functions that I was at while a Rainbow Girl in Dumas. May God comfort you at this time. From one of the Sunray rainbow girls. Teina Miller Sample

My condolences to the Trayler family. Harold was older than me, but I knew him well through Demolays when I was growing up in Dumas. he was very involved as Secretary when I was Master Councilor. And he came to Hereford when I was initiated into the Masons back into the 80's to participate in the Ceremony. As my sis said above, he was a great friend to our folks, Herman and Alice. We, his Masonic Brothers, know he has now been raised to the celestial Lodge above, where the Supreme Grand Master forever presides...forever reigns. Rest in Peace, Brother!

Another classmate gone, and our hearts grieve. I did so appreciate the support that my folks always got from Harold's folks and then from Barbara and him. So sorry to hear this news and Barbara, you are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of grief.

Barbara, I am so sorry for your loss which will leave a great void in your life. After 15 years next month, it is still great. However, I can also assure God is greater and helps us through. Lean and trust heavily because He will never fail you. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. Travel-the-path He has for you as there are-no-paths the same for everyone. God bless you and yours.
