Alphonso Matthews, a fellow "poster" known as "Harry" passed away Monday June 23 2008.

Harry was well known in these Topix forums and in the new WLTX forum. He is so greatly missed,and he was a friend, a good friend to me.

Harry had wit about him, and could tangle with the best in these threads. Most of all, he was there for me when I needed someone to talk to about the tuff things going on in my life. He was an elder gentleman with much wisdom, and a charm all unto himself. We exchanged phone calls frequently over the past couple of years, I came to think of him as part of the family....always encouraging me to keep moving forward.

So much I could say, but I will miss you Harry is the best I can do right now. I choose to believe that Harry is with our Father in Heaven, because that is the kind of guy he really was.

Rest in Peace Harry

Through our somewhat contentious exchanges we generally found a commonality in regards to respect. This forum will not be the same. Godspeed Harry, may your brothers in arms welcome you home.

In Honor of Harry I will use a picture of him as my icon for this week.

Harry and I had exchanged emails, a phone call, and letters in the past. Each one, whether it was an email, a phone cal, or a letter, was always a joy to receive. I shall miss getting them.

I am in total shock right now.

Harry, you are one of the greatest men I will have ever known. Your humor and sensitivity and your strength will be missed. Heaven is truly getting another angel. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY DEAR SWEET MAN!!

I can't believe it! At first when I read the headline, I thought someone was referring to the fact that we hadn't heard from Harry in awhile. I had no idea he had passed. I didn't personally know him, only through his comments, but I am truly saddened by his passing. God bless him and keep him. It was truly a pleasure knowing you Harry...if only through the internet. You ALWAYS came to my defense, and man were you funny. I'll miss your view on the topics of the day. My prayers to Harry's family. Thanks Warlock for letting us know!

He really will be missed. These forums lost a class act when he passed away. May God bless his family in their time of need.

I only got to talk to Harry on the phone once, and it was only for a few minutes. But he was planning a trip here to meet us. We talked many times on Topix. I wish we had a chance to meet face to face. Goodby, Harry. We'll miss you.

For Harry,

Were a star quenched on high,
For ages would its light,
Still travelling downward from the sky,
Shine on our mortal sight.

So when a great man dies,
For years beyond our ken,
The light he leaves behind him lies
Upon the paths of men.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
