My heart is heavy when I heard the news about Harvey. Betty Lou, Danny, Becky, Scotty and Hoss, you were all part of our growing up life and I always consider you my family. My prayers are with you as you honor the great life of this wonderful man. Thanks to God for the years that he was in your lives.
I send aoo my Thoughts and Prayers to the whole Family, Mr. Harvey was one kind and classey Man. On Many ocassions I had the pleasure going to Toledo to the Brown's home away from home and when i did Ms. Betty Lou and Mr. H treated me just like one of thiers. Scotty, Steve Deal and myself would start to veer of on the wrong path and we would get put back on the correct one by Mr. H and if that didn't work we had to deal with BL and neither of us wanted that. Mr. Harvey would always ask us before we headed out for more adult bevearge, do i need to go? Mr. Harvey always (just as the entire family did) made me feel welcome and wanted. Heaven gained another great Soilder. I will always cherish the great feeling he showed me as a guest with his Family. Regards, Richard Buxton
Ms. Betty Lou, I am so sorry to hear that Mr. Harvey has passed away. Just know you all are in my thoughts and prayers. He was such a sweet and kind man and I thought the world of him as I do you. I was in shock to hear of his passing and know that you and the kids will all miss him so much. Again I am truly sorry for your loss.
Always, Vanessa Neal
Your in our prayers and thoughts.Janelle Denton Greenhow,Melody Smith Callegan,Wendy Smith He'bert
When I was just a kid out of school, I hired on with the Missouri Pacific Railroad. I was working in the signal and communication dept. It took a while for me to save money to buy my first car. I was goiing to be working in the Opelousas-Eunice La. area. Harvey found out I was going to be working there, so he called me and asked my plans. I explained that i would have to stay in a motel until I bought me a car. He told me he would be working in that area also and that i could ride with him. He had, if I remember correctly, a volkswagen bus. I rode with Harvey for over six months. He would not let me pay for my ride. He told me as soon as I made a few paydays, that I could pay him. It never happened. I made payday after payday. I would offer him pay for my ride, he would always say "wait till next payday". I kept in contact with Harvey for a lot of years. He was a man of giving and not much on taking. Mrs Betty Lou Brown was and still is my favorite teacher of all my school days. Harvey will really be missed by his entire family and many,many friends
