Dear Olena, Theresa, Penny, Doug, and your families,

We are so very sorry to here that Harvey passed away. Please accept our deepest condolences. We remember Harvey with fondness... I can still hear his laugh! His smile was absolutely contageous. Whenever we would walk into church and see Harvey, my Dad (Neil Armstrong), and my uncle (Ralph Fancher) talking together, we just knew they would be laughing and telling funny stories! No wonder their wives didn't let them sit together during the services (wink, wink)!! Sweet memories of wonderful Harvey!
Much love and many prayers,
Phil and Tammy Pierson
