Later, after getting his GED and some training in
A/C he started a career in Des Plaines. Living in Florida was always a dream. We had lived there a while, back in the '50s. So Mom, our sister Sue, and Harry started a restaurant in Vero Beach. They did a great job
of it. It was called: "The Kountry Kitchen with Love."
Harry built his first house there in Vero Beach. He talked Mom
and our step-Dad into building next door so he could take care of them. Although he never married or had kids of his own he was naturally good with children. My kids always warmed up to him and his girlfriends' kids
treated him like a Dad. I believe he was getting serious with a lady enough to consider marriage at last when he got sick. It seemed he was just getting his life together with all the ingredients he'd hoped
for. I never told him what a hero he was to me.
I believe he knows it now.
