Harry was a joy to meet. I will never forget my visit to the home on the lake where he cared for the neighbors dog and was an active watcher of the nature all around him. Loved his sense of humor and the twinkle in his eye that he passed along to Gordon.
My own mother passed at the same age and shared the Alzheimer journey.
Blessings to Marie and the family as they celebrate a life well lived.
