We’ve learned that long-time HOH member Jerry Harris has come down with a variety of medical ailments, including untreatable leukemia, which has prevented him from being able to attend events. Jerry wanted us to pass this on in order to let others know why he has not been around. If anyone would like to contact Jerry directly, please reply to this email and we can pass on his contact information.
