Ah, Harry, you were unforgettable. And youwere curmudgeonely until the end. The pain an torments you endured mean plenty to even those disaffiliated former students, like myself, whose career you helped to propel.
But the pain, oh Harry, you always captured the pain. And ironically, that pain has helped me and mine understand the joy in life.
And I only lament that I never had the chance to share that, through my kids, with you.

You moved me to Gainesville by your words. That is saying something. And your love of the heart spurs me on still. Best to Byron and Sally. Indeed, this is complicated.
Love,
Pat Snee
Upon sendng the manuscript of "THe Knockout Artist" to The U. of Georgia, you were, predictably, irritated and curt. And that I never lost your focus as narrator and reader, I will forever treasure.


What folks who've never done this won't get is the skill and craft to which you were ever dedicated, despite the rest.

I mourn your loos, bless your body of work, and pray some context gets people like me again within you love of narrative and irony.
I fear too much the ridicule our times may offer your work. In it I bet a serious portion of my own life, became close to you, and now must try to make amends for a relationship that never met closure--but how well you novels reflect that. But the pain, oh

Dear Crews Family,

Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved. There are never any right words to express how deeply sad I am for the pain your family is enduring at this difficult time.

Although I did not have the honor and pleasure of knowing him, as Chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations, I am sincerely thankful for his valiant service in defense of our rights and freedom.

His commitment to family, friends, our community, and to serving our great nation leaves a wonderful legacy. May the love and the wonderful memories you shared with him help you when you need it most. He will never be forgotten, and your family will be remembered in my prayers.

Harry is now in a better place than the rest of us. It is our loss and his peace at last! May the family find love in his memories.

Great writers live forever through their books. Rest in peace.

I have a policy against keeping books that I've read around, lazing on shelves with no purpose - trophies of self-importance - but I can't let go of any of these damn Crews books. They move with me from house to house, and I honestly find explaining their presence uncomfortable. Crews' writing hooks into me and worms its way around inside like no other writer. Harry, I will miss your voice. Thank You.

Truth of the matter was, stories were everything, and everything was stories.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
