Dearest Irene,Greg, Bear and family
I am so very sorry for your loss. It seems unreal to me that Harris who was such a force of nature should be silenced. I shall miss him. I know the pain you are experiencing and hope the heartfelt sympathy of all us who also loved him will in some small measure help ease your sorrow. I am sorry I can't be with you but I am still in the hospital. Take care and if you get a chance e-mail me.Much love to you all. Bernice

Irene, Greg, Barry and families - We were saddened by receiving the announcement of Harris's passing. Harris was more than a cousin to Stan; he was the brother he never had. He always protected Stan when they were children. He had a big heart; he was so caring and understanding, and was loved by so many. Irene, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Love toyou all.
