Susan & Deb~
Condolences to you & your families on the passing of your Dad. Our family could not be more grateful to him for his friendship & service to our parents (Ken & Erma Wilson) in their later years as they got more frail & needed help. I called your Dad last year & was excited that I got to talk to him for a short time. RIP Dear Jim...We are fortunate to have known you...

I send my sympathy, thoughts and prayers for your loss of Jim Haritage. He was a good man who became a good friend to me and to so many others during his long and distinguished career as Director of Social Services at Cherokee Mental Health Institute. I am especially grateful to Jim because he hired me in April 1969 and gave me the employment opportunity to learn the honorable profession of social work. In later years I appreciated hearing from Jim when he would call me on the phone. He continued to be interested in my well being and that of his other former employees. He was such a good man.
