To Bea and all the family of Hobo. I have not met any of you except Bea. I am so sorry for your loss and apologize that I can not come to the funeral and tell all of you in person what a beautiful child of God was he was and how much he meant to me. But it would be impossible for me to fully express how grateful I am to God for knowing this wonderful man. Hobo was certainly one of a kind. If I was not half way across the world I would see you tomorrow and do my very best to tell you how much I thought of and how much I loved James Harber. He was simply the BEST!
