  • We were sorry to hear the news of Harry’s passing, Dottie. As living-away (until recently) members of the family, we’ve always appreciated the ways you and Harry welcomed us. We have fond memories of his big heart and wit. I only wish I’d had the chance to get a golf tip or two from him. Your care for Harry has been an inspiration. Love from Mitchells all.
