Your Dad was a very Special person, Harry was sincere when he asked you “how are you and Pete doing?”, he really meant that and checked on us with love!! I will miss hearing him say “are you on your way to IN to see your daughters, Lyn” when I would stop in the station to get coffee! Harry made many people smile and made their day better!! Our sincere sympathy to his family.
