Condolence from Joanne Irwin on November 15th, 2018 4:58 PM

My most heartfelt condolences to you, Mrs. Ziel, your family and to all who knew Harry. I knew Harry for 18 years, he was our accountant at where I worked, and always my personal / business accountant. I knew Harry to be the kindest, most compassionate man that I have ever met. You knew looking into his eyes, and the way he always carried himself, that he was also so very generous of spirit. Whenever he spoke of his family, his eyes lit up. I know he is being well cared for in the next stage of his life, as someone as good as he was deserves nothing less. May your grief be somehow softened by your many loving memories of him.
