Harry was a Great neighbor to me and my husband Rick. He would come over often in the summertime and sit and talk for a while. When he made his trips to the grocery store, he would pull out of the circle and honk or wait for us to notice him and wave. Thanks for being our friend, Harry. I hope you had a good journey home. We will miss you!! Love, Rick and Julie Carter, West Valley City, UT
