My uncle Harv was a kind man who loved his wife, Bev dearly. Ironically, he passed into heaven on their 65 wedding anniversary. I have many fond memories during my years growing up. I spent alot of time with Harv, Bev and my cousins, Rory and Bonnie. We were close family. My special memory of them together was at my son, Brandon (Heidi) Trzebiatowski wedding. They both were there and brought along a close friend, Virginia (Jin) Niemuth. Forever missed. I was very fortunate to be so lucky to have such a wonderful family. One last thing I remember is waterskiing and carving my name into the front door of my neighbors, Harvey's Mom and Dad's house.
