Sincerest condolences to you and your extended family on the recent passing of Hubert. Your family certainly has had a difficult last year or so and countless others share in your grief and hold you close in our hearts.

I had the good fortune to spend a lot of time at Highland Avenue growing up with Dave and yours was always a welcoming home and great place to hang out. Mr. Harnett, though small in physical stature, was a giant amongst us in many respects.

He always had a kind word, showed interest in others and offered encouragement and wisdom. His family is a great tribute to him. His was a life well lived.

God bless him and all of you.
