We just received word of Harvey's passing. He was without a doubt one my unforgettable people. I was always amazed at some of his contractions. Each fall I enjoy grapes picked from a grapevine he gave me years ago. His love for Lillie Mae and well as the rest of his family is a lesson for all us to live by. He was a dear friend to my mother and father for more than 70 years. He was truly a remarkable man and one who will remain in our memories forever.
