I am privileged and honoured to have met and stayed with Carol and Harvey during holidays with them. Not once, did Harvey ever make me feel unwelcome or in the way. He was a true and gentle, man. Rest in peace Harvey, my prayers and thoughts are for you and your family, especially your wife Carol.

Pam,
I am so sorry to read about your Dad. I remember him picking us up from football games before we all had our licenses. Plus all the memories of the girl scouts invading your family home he just took it all in stride.
I wish I could be there with you this week but I had surgery and driving is not a option right now.

My dad was an amazing man. He was humble. He didn't want anything from anybody. When you did get him something, it was like a child on Christmas morning... Every.single.time!

He never made a distinction between his biological children and those of us he welcomed through marriage. He loved us all the same and he loved my mother more than life itself.

He lived a long wonderful life, always had a good and corny joke. He will be missed.

See you in Heaven, Dad!
