  1. Thinking of you all at this time. The loss of a father is heartbreaking. Uncle Harry was always smiling, always joking and always happy to chat. He will be missed.

  2. I can remember the good days when we visited. Harry’s children and my oldest played together while the adults played cards or just visited. We had a lot of good times. Harry always seemed to be a happy man. Even when times were tough.
