Condolence from Eleanor and Sherman Roberts on September 12th, 2016 6:10 pm

To Audrey, Debbie, Brian, Kevin and families:
Growing up on “The Hill” all those years we had much laughter and great fun. Your Dad could make anyone laugh. For years we had friendly games of baseball back in Leo’s Field almost every night. I’ll never forget for my wedding your dad made me one of his first sets of night stands and they were beautiful. When thanking him for the gift he responded in kind that if I didn’t like them he would make me something else. Of course the tables lasted for almost 30 years and still I didn’t want to make away with them. I am so sorry for your loss and when you feel sad, remember the good times, for they will help lift you up.

My deepest condolences to Harris’ family. I worked with Harris for five or so years at the plumbing shop. He was a great guy, often kidding me, but he knew his job and I learned a lot from him. I still remember most of what I learned and it’s been very useful over the years when working on my own house. May your memories of the good times keep you strong during this difficult time and may Harris rest in peace.
