To all Harry's family, I am sorry for your loss. Harry was a good guy, and I very much enjoyed talking about all sorts of subjects with him, including politics. I will admit that the first time I met him, I was a little intimidated, though I think I hid it well. He could seem gruff at times but he had a good heart. I take comfort that he will be reunited with Bette in a better place than this world.
