    Many fond memories of my brother Har and I staying at the farm with Uncle Harlan. We thought he was the coolest guy around with his 60 Chev convertible, Harley motorcycle and horses. There are lots of fun stories to tell about those stays. You will never find a harder worker then him or anyone better at his trade. When I talked to him a few weeks ago and told him I thought of him because I was going to do a small stucco patch on my house he wanted me to pick him up so he could help out. Hard work was always in his DNA. Rest in peace Uncle
