What a joy to participate at silver sneakers with Harry. Always smiling. Helping others with chairs and accessories. He so adored his wife. He will be missed by many.

Loved taking doing Silver Sneakers with him, loved watching him cradling the baby in yoga class.
He danced all the time through class, he was a wonderful man.
Loved the way he took care of Catalina.
You could just see the love between them.
He will be missed in the class.
