To Shirley and children – Sorry to hear of the passing of Harry. I always admired your family for your gentleness, friendliness, and competence. You always greeted everybody with a warm smile. It was a pleasure working with you in the office Shirley and your children were always respectful.

And your father, Shirley, was a colorful, dear friend of mine.

May God’s peace comfort you.

Hi Shirley,
I just wanted to say something you already know–that Harry was a nice man and wonderful father. Being friends with Harry (son), I regularly spoke with Harry about sports and other things and know what a quality person he was. I’m sure you have many good memories that will sustain you and your family in this difficult time. My sincerest sympathy.
