We moved in next to Harry and Bo so many years ago they became more like family then friends. It didn't take long to find out Harry was the best salesmen I had ever met. Harry had decided to build a small indoor riding arena so he had a place to ride in the winter. And that made since to me. A guy we both knew had a barn built and Harry and I went to look at it. And boy did Harry and I like it !!! It was great and would be perfect to ride horses in. Well, a barn just like that one (but just a little bigger) got built. The only thing was it got built on my propety and I was the one who paid for it. After that the joke was " he was such a good salesman, he got me to build the barn and pay for it and he got to ride in it."
You will be missed forever,
Roy Houston
