    We think of Harry and Denise as family. We love them like family. Our hearts are broken that our Harry is now with the Lord, but we also rejoice that he is in such a blessed wonderful place. We will dearly miss Harry .. gone way too soon.

    Harry became a good friend after I’d had the opportunity to work alongside Andrew ten years ago. His legacy is one of the finest families I’ve been blessed to know. No doubt Harry is busy assisting the Lord fulfill John 14:2-3. Our prayers are for all that will miss him here as I will.

    It’s hard to see a nice individual like Harry pass away. I met Harry at the YMCA in Fernandina. I always enjoyed exchanging conversations with you Harry. You will be truly missed. I was blessed to have met you. Thank you for sharing your life with me. Rest In Peace.

    I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of Harry! I just happened to find out when a co-worker shared the Chapel’s list of those lost this year on All Saints Sunday. Harry and Denise were among some of my favorite people at First Presbyterian Church thru the years and I think very fondly of them both. Denise, you are in my prayers as you adjust to life without this wonderful life partner. Love to you and I celebrate the wonderful example Harry was and you both were together.
