Yes I remember the wreak. Our Daddy tried to help him. I remember he went to the Dad and told him to take the money Bill Eldridge offered or Harvey would end up with nothing. They went to court and Harvey got nothing.

Alice Shaw was a very good friend of mine.

Melissa said the reason everyone speaks well of the dead is because they are no longer around to prove you can say how nice they were and they will never make you regret it ever...
