    Dear Kathy and Family,

    We live with our twins 4 houses down on Charleswood from where you both lived. We are sad to hear of Harry’s passing and send our condolences to you all. We sure have missed seeing him on the street walking the pupfor a few years now. We used to enjoy having our usual fishing chats with him and swapping tips. He was a wonderful and kind man. Thinking of you all.

      Leaving Charleswood was difficult but needed with Harry’s condition. We are so grateful for years we had there & the wonderful, supportive neighbors. I dare not take Misu on the street – would make a bee-line for what she thinks is our home! However, we’re adjusting. Many thanks. Kathy

    • Kathycox says:

      thank-you carol – wish we could have returned to Charleswood after the fire – not to be. Am adjusting to my new status as a “widow” – seems this is a growing “club” for us in the 70’s. god Bless Kathy
