I just found this wonderful site. I never realized it existed but ironically I found it looking up arrangements for another Cooper today. I have to tell you all of your love for Harry and your devotion and writing in these posts shows the pure love you all shared. Vicky, you were my best friend all through High School and my Maid of Honor. Harry was your only true love then and you knew it from the first time you met him. Those years he was away in the service were hard on you. I remember all the fun we had driving around in his '57 chevy and pooling our pennies and nickels for gas(amazing how we complained about gasoline being 23-25 cents a gallon), hanging out while he worked on everyones car, hanging out with the Tobins and drinking Pepsi. Remember Harry's smile when we talked my Mom into going and buying that St Bernard pup for him and years later having him pick a Saint from our Saints 1st litter. I know that was so many years ago but the memories seem like yesterday. Kim and Brian I remember you as little kids and look how fast you grew, now you each have your own kids.I know Vicky is thrilled to be a grandmom and she is so proud of both of you. Kim I know how hard it must be for you to work at the hospital and visit the places your Dad was those last days. I am a nurse too and I know your job is stressful enough and this has to be hard on you. Rita, Walt you had a great brother in law. Mr and Mrs Pinkston I hope you are doing well your house was like my second home growing up and I often wish I could turn back time to those days. I wish you all the best.
