The Good News is Harley is with Jesus. I did not know Harley personally, but heard often about him through his son, Randy Hopson. The true measure of a man is in the eyes of his children. I would hear Randy speak of his father with a deep and enduring love. This confirms, to me, the greatness of Harley. My prayers go out to his family and to those who loved him deeply, May the Lord be with you.
