Harry Belk was one of the fnest men, and Sara one of the finest women I have ever known. It is no surprise that together they raised such wonderful children. I still remember the BBQ's, fish frys, horse shoe tournaments, etc at their home. Seems Harry and Sara''s moto was, "The more the merrier." The world is a sadder place today. My thoughts and prayers are with Lynn, Phil, Tracy and their families.
