Uncle Harlow I will miss you. Your kindness, patience and guidance to me will always be appreciated. I owe much of my success to you for taking me into to your home and family during my college years in Texas. You were a role model in showing me that hard work would reward me in life.

Our Most deepest condolences to the family. One of the most favorite of our uncles. I will always remember he built us a baseball field one year when we came to visit – so that we wouldn’t be bored. Silly man! Baseball in the Texas summer heat! He will be missed – but not forgotten. God bless.
