Our family’s heart breaks for all of you.

Charline is in Florida unable to fly up, the girls are scattered about including me, Michele, that just got discharged from C-DIFF. We hope our flowers will in some way help.

All of us will remember your parents and now your Dad as a special part of our lives.

Please be assured that we all will pray on this sad time.

I can still remember vividly going to the farm with my Pap-pap and playing with the animals, particularly the cement cow in the front yard : Harry was a big part of my child hood that evokes feelings of pure happiness.

I am so very sorry for your loss but please know his memory will not be soon forgotten.

May he rest in peace.

Very Sincerely,

Sarah Leinweber Gamble
