    Although we lost track of Harvey some years ago, he still has remained in our thoughts and memories. We celebrated our 50th Class Reunion this past August… Harvey would have had lots of fun with the guys. Please accept our deepest condolences for the loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. His name will be placed in our book of memories.
