Thanks Harry!

First, I want to say what an honor it is to have known Harry. Second, I want to thank Zach for allowing me this honor to be able to share just of few memories of Harry.
To simply say that Harry was a great man will not do ANY justice. He was so much more than a boss, he was my mentor and it was honor to be able to call him friend.

Okay, I didn’t realize that this was going to be this emotionally difficult! I have so many hilarious and fond memories of Harry. He ALWAYS had a smile on his face, no matter what the situation.

--- [ Longer Pause, Harry would have just told me what to say ] ---

You can ask anyone at City Hall and they will tell you that I can talk all day about Harry! If anyone wants to call me up, I’ll talk your ears off about the time Virginia had to “remodel” the hotel room when we went to Monticello Georgia for a Better Hometown Manager’s meeting; I will tell you about the “interesting” music that Harry would listen to; I can tell you about the times that he would ask me to go get his chair, knowing that I never could “drive” that thing; I will tell you about how many times he would play bumper cars with door frames; I can tell you how proud he was when Cornelia was selected as a “Better Hometown” (thanks to him); I can tell you about how he helped me through some rough personal times; I can tell you...so much!!!!!!!!

I think that for now, I will simply say: “Thanks Harry, for everything.”

Your bud,
Jeff
