Harry Tillery and Jo ride a camel in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, in 1968.
Today I sent a copy of “Little Women” to Odell Tillery, one of Harry’s relatives. I spoke with Mr. Tillery, and learned that Harry has passed away. I felt as if I knew him, but I knew him as a young man from Jo’s diary, and writing about him in the book. It is very odd to think that he is gone, before I had a chance to tell him about the book.
Jo remembers Harry as a kind and gentle man. May he rest in peace.
