I am truly sorry to learn of the horrendous lose. I have been a ghost friend for many years, rarely speaking or visiting, how ever the matters of friendship always bind in ones heart. I have watched many things over the years of my knowledge of this family, and enjoyed every moment doing this. I will do my best to be in attendance for the final moments of life’s celebrations with yawl . My heart and thoughts will be with the family now and my God Bless them as well in this time of trials and tribulations.. God Bless

Bonnie ,Tara and Jason and your families ,,,a very sad and sudden loss for you all and Harry’s extended family . Have been trying to decide if the significance of your Dad’s / Grandpa’s death during Easter weekend will in time be softened by such an association and hope for you that it will be so. While I never met this obviously charitable ,loving and well loved gentle man my daughter Jane says you were indeed all fortunate to have had him as a vital influence in your lives .May God bless him and you all going forward..Heartfelt regards ,Rob Hilton

Lucille and all of your family, we send you a big hug during this difficult time. Your family has always held a special spot with Murray and myself, by seeing you at “the Land”, having MYF at your house in the basement whether you wanted us or not, seeing your smiles and greeting you at church, and lately singing Christmas carols for you and Harry. Special times like this will stay with us forever.
May you all remember those wonderful times you spent with Harry, your father.
Love,
Wendy and Murray
