So sorry to read about your Daddy. He was such a sweet man and I loved seeing him at church every week while I was growing up. You and your family were great friends of the Harcourt's. Also, I loved all of my friends on Stark Avenue as I rode my bike over there on an almost daily basis (still in the hood from Eberhart Ave) and so loved that I knew every house and the family friends living there. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Christi Harcourt
