Jean and Sue...I worked for Harry at Dog n Suds back in the 70s. He was always an amazing boss and someone I looked up to always. I still remember fondly working there and how it felt to me that Harry trusted me and challenged me. God Bless you all as you go through this time.

What a wonderful man. A gentleman. It was obvious the first time I met him and Jean, how much he loved her. She took very good care of Harry during his illness. It was an honor and privilege to be able to care for them. And, I made wonderful friends. I love you Jean.
