Tracy, I am so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of you and your father at many of the swap meets that we both frequented. It was evident that your dad really appreciated your hard work ethic and kind demeanor. I will miss his friendly smile and happy go lucky attitude.

Barb, Tracy, and Andy--saddened to hear of Dan's death and your loss. I still remember watching Dan at truck pulls and how much he lived. More recently, I remember him talking to me at mom's funeral, and won't forget him and his compassion. We'll remember Dan and all of you in our prayers.

We are so sorry to hear of Dan's passing. Dan was my classmate at Homestead. I always enjoyed his kind nature and great sense of humor. His brother Dave was my husband's dear friend in high school. We both have such fond memories of the whole Harber family. Our hearts and prayers are with the family at this sad time.
