Condolences to you and your family. Harry was always so jovial and had a “story” for just about any occasion. I enjoyed spending time with you in Beulah.

Our deepesty sympathy to Ann and family.
We are so very saddened at the loss of our friend and “Best Man” at our wedding. He will always live in our hearts. We shared many wonderful days at Casa De Paz with Harry and Ann and what fun we had dining at the Country Club. One could never bored around Harry. He loved people and entertaining. When I told Harry how much I admired Ann and all her accomplishments, he said, “everyday, she never ceases to amaze me.” Ann, may you find comfort in knowing how much he loved you. We are so sorry we cannot be there for the services, but we will pay our respects privately at a later date. Our “Best Man” is now with God. We will miss him
