    Mike was definitely a gifted carpenter. Some of his work was absolutely amazing. He did work at my house about 10 years ago and everything was perfect, because that’s all Mike knew-perfection. He played golf the same way, always working to get better at the game. He made friends wherever he went and he will be missed by many. My sincere condolences to his family, Patti, Patrick and especially Harry. My prayers are with all of you.

    Our prayers and condolences to the Family of Michael Harrison. Although we didn’t know Michael personally, we did know about him through his dear Father Harry. We were fans and listeners of Harry for many years and want to say this is how we learned about the members of Harry’s Family. Harry always talked about all about his loved ones during his shows. Love from Harry for all of the Harrisons were felt by us. It made us feel like extend ed members of the Family. We wish that Michael rests in peace for always.

  9. Harry, my friend, I’m truly and deeply sorry for your loss. At this stage in our lives, I find that memories are the fuel that helps keep me going. But nothing pains the heart more than a beloved child consigned to memory too soon. May the support of your family help you weather this storm, just as I know you’ve been there for them all these years.
