    I am so saddened to read of Boze’s passing. I have many fond memories of our times together and family celebrations as a child. We celebrated our October birthday togethers. Both Hal and Bill (Boze) were like my big brothers. There was a lot of teasing between us. Every holiday meant a get together with good food and much laughter. I will always remember you, cousin, the last of the Harzs.
