Condolences to the family of Harlon. I am an early childhood friend. Herrell Reed and my father Fletcher Moore worked for American Desk in the early 50’s. Our families had weekend fried oyster cookouts and were very close in those early years. Harlon and his brother Johnny were great friends. After high school space and time separated everyone. My Mom and Hallie stayed in touch with each other throughout their elder years. Such fond memories of Harlon. May he Rest In Peace in God’s grasp.
