Harry was like a brother to me for over 50 years. I don't understand why my good friends are going before me, but there must be a reason.
All Of My Love,
Al Ferguson and Family

That picture of Harry with #117 brings back a ton of memories. One that sticks with me to this day is I had a cup of coffee with him on his last trip for Russ Phillips Trucking and he told me that he was going to go to work for this up and coming company called Conway Western Express and that I had better get over there. Well it took me a couple of years but I finally did. That was 31 years a go and I'm still there. One of the best piece of advise ever!!! Thinking of you Wanda.

Thank you, Harry, for helping me grow up in trucking. I was a spoiled kid, and not only did you help teach me to drive, but you taught me respect and friendliness. I have nothing but good memories of you.

My condolences, Wanda and family.

I remember when Michele and I were growing up, Mr. Gardner, would treat me like a member of the family. He was always willing to help me , if I asked him. I had nothing but love and respect for him.. He was a hard working man who also loved Christ. I am looking forward to seeing him when Father God calls me home.

Mrs. Gardner, Michele and Scott please know that you are in my prayers. I love all of you. Remember, God ever gives us more than we can handle without His help. I know that he will always be alive in your hearts and minds and that someday you will be reunited in Heaven.
