Dear Ginny and Family,
I am so very sorry to hear of Harry's death. I had been in Springfield caring for my folks last Friday afternoon through yesterday evening and didn't get word of his passing until I returned. He was a 'gem' and surely will be missed by anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. I am making a donation to Abby's House in his name.
God Bless and much love in your time of need...
-Mary Ann
