I always enjoyed Harvey's company when Jo and I would come to Raleigh to visit or spending time with him and Jen in Vegas! I always admired his technical skills with the computer from the TV to Alexa, etc. So long Harvey and God Speed. Tom

R.I.P dear brother, you deserve it. We will miss you forever, but you will always be in our hearts. Harvey said many times that he was a lucky man with a loving wife and a family that he was so proud of. They were the center of his life and he was grateful. I offer my heartfelt condolences to them and send my goodbye for now. Sleep in peace little brother. Love, Jo

So many beautiful memories of my brother but one that stays with me more than others. My Mom died in 1985 and before she died she asked Harvey to take care of me and my kids. I was divorced and money was scarce even though I worked. My oldest son Terry was graduating from high school and I had no money for a suit. Harvey and Jennifer made that happen and Terry looked awesome!! I love my brother with all my heart and will miss him so much. He is at peace and as I say, " I bet him and Mom are playing pinochle in Heaven."
