Melody & Kristi,
I have so many fond memories of Harry & Junie!! You know how much both of them meant to my mother & father. I am so sorry to hear of June's passing; she & Harry were such a big part of my upbringing, and of course my organ-playing years (which really weren't years at all - probably 2 at the most!) as I practiced at the church, plus your mother being the organist at my wedding and my mother's funeral. I remember all of you with incredible warmth & nothing but good feelings.
