  3. Dear Harvey Family,

    We are sorry that Mr. Harvey has passed away. We remember his kindness. I also remember Mr. Harvey’s sense of humour (and how he did not mind when I laughed sometimes at things he said that were not intended to be humorous!).

    One of my favorite memories of Mr. Harvey, Mrs. Harvey, and Doris was at our cabin in Windermere. Mr. and Mrs. Harvey were in the lake, beaming as they talked and swam. “They love the water,” said Doris, smiling.

    We wish you all the best in the days ahead.

    Kira Lyttik and family
