  1. Dear Mrs. Hartman, Monica, Clark and family, You have our deepest condolences on your loss. We know how much Mr. Hartman was loved and will be missed. We are so sorry that we have a previous commitment on December 5th, or we would be at the funeral to lend our support. Our love and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Sincerely, Frances Hollomon Pat and Lorri Shortall and family

  2. I will always remember Uncle Harry’s wonderful smile – and the Irish twinkle in his eyes that all the “Hartman boys” seemed to have. He will be very missed. With love, Jeri Lynn

  3. Dorthy Betty and I send our deepest sympathy to you and your family for your loss. Harry was always a pleasure to work with at Hughes and you were always the greatest as my secretary. May God’s love and confort be with you and family during this difficult time. Sincerely Bill and Betty

  4. I want to send my condolences to the Hartman family. I went to San Pedro High School with his son Harry (and lots of Rock concerts many years ago). I do remember what a nice family Harry had. God bless you all at this difficult time and in the years to come. Best wishes, Marie
