    My deepest sympathy to you and to Mr. Reid’s family. Another one of the really great entertainers. He will be missed something terrible.

    When I first heard the news of Harold’s passing I was heart shattered and still am. And will be for a while. I saw the Statlers 70 times in concert and loved every minute. Even the New York Times called them country music’s best entertainers. Fly high, Harold. You’re home at last!!

    Bill, that was wonderful, completely from the heart.
    I am 66, and came to country music later in life.
    I now know what I have missed.
    Thank you for making me realize I should have found it years ago.
    I am. Widow, and you sing to me and keep me sane .
    Thank you
    Liz

    It is sad news to hear of the passing of Harold Reid. The Statlers were one of Country Musics best groups or super groups as they are often known. I do think without Harold’s voice they would not have been so well known. Harold had suffered his illness for a while, but from what I have been reading, he did not let it get in the way of who he was. I have lost a couple of friends to Covid 19, and one of them had MS and apart from it robbed her of any ability to do something for herself, she did not let it get in the way of who she was. She still had her sense of humour as did Harold with his illness. The first time I ever heard the Statler Brothers was when I bought a record in the mid 70’s which was a 20 track compilation of various artists. Flowers on the wall was my introduction to these guys and still remains one of my favourite songs. Rest in peace Harold. You and Lew are now preparing to regroup for the master himself.
