Memories Timeline


  1. Although I never met Mr. Hoelzer, I can sure see his son Bubba in his face. And, also felt a distant kinship since my parents were from New Orleans. So sorry he left you all 🙁

  2. I first met Mr. Harold In 1996 when I started going to church with Todd. He immediately became my favorite person there. He was accepting, funny and honest. He said what he thought and I loved that about him. 

    He was really good to my two little boys and he noticed things others didn’t. He had everyone’s number! I still remember words of wisdom he gave me all these years ago.

    My very sincerest condolences to his family.. truly his death is a great loss.. there just aren’t many men left like him. May he Rest In Peace.

  3. My sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time. May you all seek God for comfort, peace, strength and support (2 Cor 1:3).
