I lived directly next door to the Foglietta Family after they moved to Riverside in the late '50s. Our two family driveways touched one another. Harry and I (and Jim) spent a couple of years "horsing around" together in the neighborhood, and those two were just two of the same group of "guys" until the surfing bug hit them. When the movie "Gidget" came out in the summer of 1959, Harry was hooked. He told me one day that he was going to be one of the best. It was a buzz throughout Riverside (with anyone who knew anything about surfing) that "The Foglietta Boys" were restoring a beaten up vintage '40s "woody" in their dad's garage. I watched Harry and Jim work on that project for at least a couple of years. When it was finished it was spectacular. They did it completely on their own. Within this time frame they both became amazing surfers. Harry was a special young man. I never saw him again after we parted ways following our youth. Life simply took over. I've thought about him and his entire family many times through my lifetime, and always wanted to say to him just once how sorry I was not to have said good bye in some meaningful way. You see ---- when someone in your youth sends messages of value to you, you never lose that soul. Harry, I send you something that I was never able to give until now. I have wrapped it for the arms of God, from whom I believe you were given an unusually profound gift. I see what you lived and how you lived it and how many people loved you. You are not gone, Harry. You are part of me now once again. I was sent a soulful message through time now just before you are to be interred in the same national cemetery that I have chosen for my remains to be placed some day. I could not have known this day had come any other way. I was simply told in my soul that you wanted me to be a part of you again. And there we will some day to come return to Riverside where our youth met manhood. You were quite the guy, Harry. My prayers will always be with you. That is who I became. God rest your soul, dear one.
