I worked with Harry at Westinghouse & He,Margaret and I were all relieved of duty together by a unnamed co. at the same time. That for me was a blessing because it gave me a long life much as it did Harry. Both Harry and Margaret were will liked and respected by all who know them. They will be remembered by me and my wife Doris as happy and hard working folks who benefited everyone who came to know them. Those were some of the best years of our lives and I thank you both for the memories that are really so good working together with you. Don & Doris Folweiler
