Dear Edna and Family,

So sorry to read in the paper of Harry passing on. You probably don’t remember me but I am one of Elmers daughters.Lot of memories within the family as I remember well his father and mother Harry and Kathleem who lived in South Bellaire. I remember my father went to your farm all the time. Harry was a good man and a provider. Took care of his family. I know he will be missed. We all know that he is in a better place then we are. I know we would like to hold on to them but they are only given to us for a while. Keep looking up. May God Bless in all you do.
