He was a fun Uncle when you get him and my dad (his brother) together it was nothing but a barrel of laughs. The most funny thing I remember the most is when we were fishing and when he got a bite he pulled the rod so hard and so fast my father said "Good God Harland if you keep doing that you are going to end up with nothing but a set of lips!" . The brothers are now together with their parents Heaven is a better and fun place with them two together. Love you Uncle Harland miss you very much. Cannot wait to go fishing with you in Heaven!
