In the mid 1950's, Uncle Harry was on the scene to run me to the hospital when I crashed into a tree stump, on our 6' sled, racing down the snowy "suicide hill" at Faurot Park. He was a life saver that day ... I think of him every time I see the scar on my chin. Gonna miss him for sure. He was the best uncle ever ...
