So sorry for your loss. While I have many great memories of Harry one of my fondest is on my 16th birthday, a Saturday. Harry went with me to get my drivers license in the 2 ton truck. Well it had iced early that morning and when we got there the guy yelled at Harry for letting me drive down on ice. If you can imagine, a 16 year old boy who was about to be liberated, I was crushed. Then as we were leaving the guy yells at Harry again telling him not to let me drive home. Harry not saying a word. When we got to the north edge of Taylorville Harry pulls the truck over and says "your driving home". He came back Monday morning and we went again. What a great man!
