I first met Harry at Gatti Assoc. He was a constant mentor at work and I had a lot of respect for him. After we went to Misco my travels took me in another direction with the mining work. Through the years we would run into each other at Coldwell here in town. I will miss his stories and I am sure he is in a better place now.
