Now that your time on earth is done God is holding me together with memories of our childhood, hugs, disagreements, and special times. My heart aches but as Gandhi is quoted-\” There is no goodbyes for us, Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.\”
Love ya Sis
Among his many wonderful qualities, I was always most impressed by his drive and fight. He would face every challenge head on and figure out a way to complete every task on his own. His lessons will live on for ever.
I miss so much about Uncle Harry, it is hard to know where to begin. He had such a generous spirit, such a positive outlook, such an unbridled zest for life. He struggled with many challenges to his health, but not once did we ever hear of his pain, nor see a hint of complaint. Try as I might, I simply cannot recall his face wearing anything but a smile. And everyone he ever met, no matter how briefly, always came away as his friend. May the Irish music always play on!
Ah, Harry, you were such a big part of my \”growing up\” life. Closer than any Uncle I had, more fun than most adults I knew…I remember winter week-ends at our house, sledding and freezing while you and Donna sat back and laughed. I remember dinners at your house, one in particular when you convinced me that Donna had prepared Ground Hog….
I remember how you loved my kids. You invested your time and attention in them much the same as you did when I was a kid. You one in a million Harry…
I\’m glad to have gotten to know you. You were this fun-loving, creative, adventurous, quirky fellow that seemed to click with everyone you met. Although I know you preferred light-hearted fun, I was also grateful for the chances of connections built beyond the surface smiles. Thank you, grandpa.
Grandpa, I remember walking down to christmas run park with you. You were so tall and that whole walk was an adventure to an underground playground that blew me away when I was little. I took that walk the other day and smiled the whole way. Thank you for sharing your magic and adventure with me. I will always remember you that way.
Grandpa, You were so silly, and the smartest most curious man too. I\’m replaying the many smiles you gave me in my head. We\’re all so lucky to have spent a little time with you.
The small paths outside you made are so special in my memory. After following the connections around your home which pulled me through wonders of frog filled fish pond, mossy fountain, small windows peaking into the play hall, and so many flowers…finally…the steps descending into the woods behind your house. Your space spoke as curiously as your soul. Love you much.
My memory is so clear of Trish and I playing music for Harry and his tears of joy at hearing the beauty of the harp and violin. He loved the Irish music and his Irish heritage. And in typical Harry fashion, he contributed to the peace of Ireland by being part of the Peace Process. The overwhelming feeling I have of him is love and energy and a sense that there was nothing that couldn\’t be done if you decided to make it happen. Thank you, Harry, for gracing us with your presence on earth!
thanks dad…you were there for me when I needed you to be…
love you and will miss you till we meet again,
Harry, I will always be greatful for having known you. You were the one who introduced me to my very best friend and sister Wendy. Thank you! The world is just a little less colorful without your presence. You are missed, but, still greatly loved. TF
I\’ll miss our conversations. You told great stories, Harry. Thanks for always being so excited to see us. I\’ll miss your warm smile.
I always enjoyed spending time together on the patio.
Rest in Peace Harry.
