To Anne and family offering my condolences may your dad James Harper Rest in Peace!

Sending love and condolences to my cousins and their families. James was my mother's brother. Theirs was a close relationship. As adults they lived far apart but maintained a weekly correspondence and got together when possible. I have fond memories of family visits. My Uncle James lived a good and interesting life. He and my Aunt Marjorie were very special, caring people who loved family and friends.

Please accept our deepest condolences to the Harper family.

As a friend of Greg, I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. James Harper. I knew him as a true gentleman and devoted Christian who put optimism into every step he took. God Bless him for service to his country and the example he set for all.

As one of Barbara Hays' adult children I am so grateful that Jim befriended our mother, making the last years of her life far more joyous and full. He was eminently worthy of respect, warm and gracious, grateful for his life, a disciplined and loving man. He is no doubt glad to be in heaven, though we who have yet to finish our races miss him. God bless you, Harper clan. With love for Jim and you.

Dear Anne, What a noble and devoted legacy your Dad has left to you and your family! May happy and proud memories bring you peace and console you in the days ahead. With my sympathy and love, Linda Pillo, Bridgeport, CT BOE, August 3, 2020
