So sorry for your loss. I sat with Harry many times watching the G gauge trains run on Sunday afternoons. He loved trains.

My condolences to the Sorenson family. My husband Jim and Harry shared the common interest of model railroading. I remember visiting with Jim the layout designed by Harry in Sun City. What a fantastic feat! He will be sorely missed by many friends and relatives.
