  1. I knew Harry and his family when we were in high school . I remember Harry as kind of a serious guy who never seemed to have a bad word about anybody . I remember back then having a ” crush ” on his sister Marge and Harry being somewhat amused by it all . I know his family is going to miss him and I know the world is going to be a little worse off with him gone . My sympathy goes out to his loved ones .

  2. Marjie & family,
    Sorry to hear about your brother. I hope all the good times will be cherished memories!
