Dear Family and Friends,
Please accept my deepest condolences. I have known Harvey through the United Methodist Church of Kent, where we took a couple of Disciple courses together. He was a truly good and kind man -- a real gentleman in a time when that has become rare. He had a generous spirit and always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. He helped to make this world a little better place, and I will miss him.
