I grew up hearing the stories about Harry that my daddy told. He was always so fond of him. I bet they are laughing together right now. I know he will be missed here on earth.

The first time I met Harry he pulled a knife out of his belt buckle, held it to my throat, and said "I could have killed you - you've got to pay attention." Harry always kept things interesting. I'll miss him.

There is and was only one Harry Norris. He was tall for his size and quite a character. If you look up giant in the dictionary there should be a picture of Harry, he was just that even though he was only 4 1/2 feet tall (if that). He will be missed.
