  1. To all of Mr. Harrison’s family~~
    I am still remembering the last hug that I got from your dad(granddad, uncle, etc.) as he and I were entering Safeway. I can’t remember just when I first met him,but I know Merle’s family…or perhaps we met him when we were househunting before our wedding. At any rate,over the years, I got to know him and your mom. I was so shocked when she died, and I felt he really never got used to being without her presence I haven’t seen him in months now. We seemed to SEE each other AT Safeway and I had noticed some changes.I am wondering if this was sudden or if he has been ill. At any rate, I feel saddened,too, but I pray that you are being given very special comfort and that this adjustment of loss will go as well as these times can. On this Father’s Day, 2008, may you remember all the legacies your dad has left you. I will miss him, too.
    Sincerely, Leah Samuelson
