  1. Harry, I was sorry to see that you had lost your Mother. I know that you did so much to care for her these past few years. I met her once when she was already sick. She was very nice to me.
    My family lost both parents with 15 months of each other and although it is going to be 5 years now it is so fresh in our hearts. We miss them everyday so with you having been so close to your mom and her care leaves a great void in your heart and life.
    God bless you brother and I wait for a time when we can visit each other again.
