I will always treasure the morning meetings with Harry at Castcraft. I always looked forward to seeing him. I learned a lot from him about, caring for people, about family, about handling tough times and enjoying the good ones.

Even at the latter stages of his life he still cared about his friends, his business, and
our country. He knew what was going on in politics and he and I discussed the situations in a loving way.

Harry you're one of a kind.

Love You,
