Harold Flax

December 22, 2018

Harold Flax passed away on December 22, 2018. 

Previously we thought Mr. Flax was all alone in the world. We were mistaken

Mr. Flax was a great musician. He played the harmonica and guitar.

Mr. Flax came to Des Moines from Mexico, MO. He  had 2 sisters. When they were very young, both parents contracted Tuberculosis. After  both parents passed away the children were sent to an orphanage where they were all adopted separately.  They lost track of each other for many years but eventually reunited here in Des Moines.. As fate would have it, one of the siblings became ill and after hospitalization was sent to convalesce and they again lost track of each other. Now after almost 40 years, Harold and his sister, Ida are again separated. 

Say a prayer for Mr Flax and his family that they be united eventually in Heaven.
