    Love you Uncle Harry. Always a favorite uncle, so warm, easy-going, loved to laugh, caring. A good guy. Unassuming. Humble. So kind and understanding, you would ask me to dance at the weddings when I was a kid. What a sweet memory. When as kids playing outside at Grandpa’s & Grandma’s (the white house), screaming and being loud, you wouldn’t yell or belittle us, but explain things to us. I always looked forward to seeing you and Aunty Christine. Adore you both. Our heart is with you Aunty Christine, Dallas, Kris and your families. XO

    We are so sorry for your families loss. Uncle Harry was a kind, sweet, generous Man. We miss him dearly. He fought long and hard and courageously with his battle with cancer. We feel and believe He’s suffering no more in heaven. He’ll be with us in spirit until we get to heaven and see Him again. Once again we are so sorry for your loss. May God comfort you at this time. Love Louise and Michel.

  5. I send my deepest sympathies to you, Christine – and to all of your family. Harry was a one-of-a-kind kind of guy and he will be missed. He was always kind and had a soft heart for family. His strong sense of family is a legacy he has left for you all.
    You are all better for having known him. As you begin this new journey without him, know that others are there to offer support in whatever way you need. 49 years together is to be celebrated! You are in my thoughts.
    Joanne McKay
