    Harvey and my dad were best friends for many years. Harvey visited our home many times. He would always feed our chickens and dogs when we would travel. My dad did the same for him. I will miss our phone calls when Harvey would give me advice about raising guineas. Praying for Anne and the family.

    It is with great sadness that I say good-bye to a fine friend and a man whose dedication to a life founded on moral values and kindness will be missed by all who knew him. Harvey's father and my father were close friends in Seven Springs. Harvey's honesty, friendliness, and good-will never wavered over the years. I will miss him greatly. My sincere condolences to his wonderful family. May God bless and give you strength during this time of grief.

    My sincere condolences to Anne, Harvey Lee, Howard, Carolyn, and other surviving family. As we are saddened by the departure of a loved one and great friend, may you be comforted by knowing that Harvey now has the "Mansion Just Over The Hilltop" that he sang about for so many years. As we grieve his passing, we rejoice in knowing where he's gone, and that we shall meet him again someday. I knew Harvey for about 60 years, sang with him, played bass in his band, and can say that I never knew a finer Southern Gentleman. He will be greatly missed, by many.

    We followed Harvey's "Ordinarys" band for over 20 years. During that time we met a lot of different musicians who made music with him. It was a special time with a very special person. We will always think of Harvey with a smile, knowing that, now, he is in heaven making music with the angels.
