Harvey is the most kindest father in-law a person could ever ask for !! I will miss his smile the shrug of his shoulder and the twinkle of his blue eyes when he knows Velma is getting after him for trying to get another helping of ice cream . Harvey was the safest man I knew there was never a day you felt scared nervous heard a cuss word saw him drink alcoholic beverages raised his hand or voice in anger .Coming into a new family with two children sometimes doesn’t work out well but in my case I must of been the most luckiest mom ever. After I married Ron , his parents treated their new grandchildren with love and support and reinforce their special bonds that grew between them. And after the birth of Sydney Harvey and Velma continued to show all that love and affection to her. What a great man and example you were . We love and miss you Well Harvey Arrivederci Until we meet again
