    Met Harvey in dementia support group a few years ago. Our wives were in memory care at the Summit Place. We shared our experiences as alzheimer caregivers in our daily lives. We would see each other almost daily when visiting with our wives either in person or thru window during covid. He was so devoted to and caring for Shirley. Her eyes would light up when she saw him. What a great,compassionate guy. I will miss our conversations.
