    My deepest sympathy is extended to the family. I became acquainted with Harry when he was at the 911 center and would sometimes have a need to come by City Hall. He was a very polite gentleman and it was always a pleasure to see him coming in to conduct whatever business he might have had. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
    I regret that I was not able to make it to the visitation. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very difficult time.
