    Hi everyone!

    Although I have not made it a secret that I am undergoing chemotherapy I have not widely broadcast it either. I still drop by the site regularly and wanted you all to know it goes well with me. I have not posted much because there's a lot on my plate lately but I wanted you all to know much I miss you and thank you for your best wishes and words of support. They are a great help-best from harry

    I hope that you keep getting better, Harry.

    Not quite the prolific poster here that I used to be, but I still visit OptiBoard every day.

    I will keep an eye out here for more reports of your progress.

    We received a link to this blog from Harry's daughter Susan and have permission to share this with the community: http://harryjilson.blogspot.com/

    I am without words unfortunately. There hasn't been any greater friend to OptiBoard than Harry and we continue to have him in our thoughts and wish he and his family the best under these circumstances.

    Harry is and has been mentor and above anything else a true hearted friend. Went and spoke with him...............laffed and cried as well. He told me about his decision to let nature take its course. I respect his decision.I just dont know how my life would of been,he neither,if we never crossed paths.....a long time ago.Not to be selfish.......but i can not imagine someday he will be gone. But i will remember our hugs and handshakes for as long as iam around. I will always be and speak proudly of him. To say the least iam crushed,and feel for his entire family.

    Harry, I've got you and your family in my thoughts and prayers!

    Opticianry, and me personally, has lost a true mentor and friend. May God bless and his wonderful family. Most of you here probably have no idea how great his lost is felt. I loved him dearly.
