Louise....I was so happy for both of you to be able to celebrate with you at your wedding to Harry....Over the years I have many happy and funny memories of Harry when he was at Frequency.. both at FEL functions and especially in the golf league.. He was the consummate gentlemen on and off the golf course... a GREAT guy... and I know that he will be missed by you and his family. I have corresponded with Harry via e-mail from time to time over the years .. and I will miss his humor and friendship..
God bless you and your family..

Harry - missing your kindness, wit and sense of humor. No one could ask for a better friend or golf buddy. I was always hoping that you would lick the cancer and we could have one more round together. Keep a tee time open for me on the other side.
