Condolences for Harold A. "Harry" Nichols


Cyndy, Although I did not know Harold personally, I know from my relationship with you how much of your life and life's work as a teacher and mother came from his support and love. I am thinking of you and holding you in my prayers.

Our hearts hurt for you, Cyndy, and your family.

My sincere sympathy to the Nichols family. I also had the pleasure of working with Harry at the "Mills" Yes, I enjoyed and admired his collection of memorabilia of the mills. But his wonderful stories and memories he shared of his family and the memories that Cyndy and your family have are the true keepsakes that you will cherish forever in your hearts. May God Bless you and your family. Andrea Richmond

I had the occasional pleasure of working with Harry at La Crosse Footwear. I always admired him for his problemsolving and future planning skills. He was well respected as an honest and straightforward coworker. You have my sincerest sympathy. God bless you, Harry.

Cyndy, It's been a long time since I have substitute taught as 6 years ago I took a job change, working at TJ Maxx. I see many teachers that I have subbed for or with there, and do remmeber seeing you there one day also. I did not know of your husband's illness, but will remember him in my prayers tonight. I entered his caringbridge to read a few enteries and to view the pictures of him with the new grandson. I'm sure he will always be watching over you and that special little boy, as Harry will be your true life guardian angel. May you have comfort and heal through your loss. God bless you and your family. jane beamer06@centurytel.net

To the friends and family of Harry Nichols: I had the fortune of working with Harry at LaCrosse Footwear for a number of years. Harry liked the solitude of having his own area and being his own boss. He often talked about his family with pride and always looked forward to vacations with his wife in the summer. He enjoyed collecting LaCrosse Footwear memorabilia over the years and I've often wondered what ever became of that collection. It was quite interesting what he would find from the company's past. Harry took pride in his work. He was often given difficult problems and came up with creative solutions. Many times he was challenged, but he never said no to anyone. I'm glad Harry was able to enjoy that job for many years. It seemed to suit him. Harry and I both shared a love for dogs. I know it was difficult for him when his dog passed on, but he enjoyed many years of pet-sitting for others. We often talked about his canine guests. I'm sorry you lost Harry at such a young age. Life is fleeting. May your faith help you through this difficult time.

Cyndy and family: You have my deepest sympathies. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May you find peace and joy in the memories of your time together.
From Sandi Thomas

When Harry worked at the Footwear Company, I was working for Universal Business Forms. I went over to the print shop every month to inventory forms and Harry and I would talk about evrything. I remember mostly him talking about his Family and how proud he was of his Daughters. Harry was a Good Guy, and will be missed.
From JIM BOCK

Cyndy and Family There are no words that we can say that express how sad we are to lose Harry. He was a wonderful neighbor, kind, thoughtful, loving, caring and above all was there if you needed anything. We feel blessed to have lived next to him and to you. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. We will always be there for you and your family if you ever need anything. All of our love Al & Sue Bluske

To the Family of Harold Nichols: We are so very sorry for your loss of Harold, at such an early age. Life has a tendency to constantly throw things are way to test our love and faith. Are hearts go out to you at this time, as your hearts are now breaking. Blake shared a childhood memory of going downstairs in grandma and grandpa's basement with Harold and his band members. He thought that was just the coolest thing; just watching them practice and playing their instruments. They both loved the older 50's and 60's music; something they neither grew out of. Like you, I've lost someone very close to me from cancer. My aunt wasn't much older than Harold. It's been almost six years now, the pain does get better, but I still cry for her, and I still talk to her. She is physically gone, but she is with me daily. May god help you through the difficult times ahead. We love you. If you need ANYTHING, please don't hesitate to call (895-3029) Blake and Kate Nichols

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We hope your memories give you strength.
