  1. I want to offer my condolences, I just got the news of Mr Harris passing. As you know Mr and Mrs Harris were my neighbors for many years when I lived there in Columbus, we now reside in Virginia. We shared a lot of good times and he and Mrs Harris will always hold a special place in old heart. We still look at the videos of various events and smile, because he knew how to get a laugh out of anybody. He will surely be missed. If anyone wants a copy of a couple of videos i still have them. I am on facebook under Winfred Henry just friend request me and i can send them.
