To Susan and Dave and all of the Rogers family and friends, so sorry to hear that Harry had passed away. I started working with him at the Journal in 1969 in The Composing Room. Enjoyed chatting with him over the years. I know he'll be missed. He loved his family and always seemed to have something to share. He was a great man. Just know and trust now that God is taking care of him and God will also bring comfort to those who loved Harry.
