    To Sir, with Love - I think I will always remember you dancing....With your daughter at her wedding; With your wife of 56 years, never missing a beat; Riding a horse (of course); And I danced with you when I could no longer dance with my own Dad. But there are so many memories, how can I pick my favorite? When you lived in Berkeley Heights, I would come home with Leigh Ann on Wednesdays for lunch. It was a special treat when you were unexpectedly home, and an even bigger treat when you would turn off CNN to let us watch our soap. There were family picnics and reunions, birthday parties and weddings, and who could forget calendar dances with ìHarry and the Harabediansî. Weíve rang in the New Year, been Mouseketeers, seen our shadows, and have even seen Prankster in concert. So, my favorite? I think it is just the memory of you, Harry. I will miss you. We will all miss you. Love, Fluffy
