Harry was my close friend for 70 years. This news took me by a shock. I wish I could have seen him at least one more time. I was planning to see him on the 17th of July. He will be missed forever.

So sorry to hear this. Sorry for your loss, Dawn. Condolences to you and your family. Your dad was a loyal supporter of you. It was fun to talk to him and see his pride as you and Kelsey excelled at horse shows. Find comfort in the sweet memories and that so many are thinking of each of you.
