Our sincerest condolences Margaret, so sorry to hear of Harry's passing. It's been so long since I saw you both, but I'll never forget his smile and his easy nature. You both always treated me like a brother, and I'll never forget him. Praying for comfort for you and your family. Love you all, g

Dear Bateman Family: I had the good fortune to meet and to work with Harry back in the late 50's in the Amp
gage Lab in Harrisburg. Harry was a great guy, a good teacher and a lot of fun. May the good Lord bless you with his Grace and Peace.

So sorry for the loss of Harry. He always had a joke when I came to the bowling alley and Margaret was making the coffee. I've missed seeing both of you this year on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Rest assured, he is in a much better place where there is no pain or suffering and you will one day be with him again. May God's love surround you and give you his peace during this difficult time.

I'm no poet but I wanted to try to share my thoughts.

Uncle Harry B.
Looking forward to when we will see each other again.
Hope the fishing is good for you until then.
There you are on the Allegheny,
Smiling and waving for all of us to see.
Or maybe you're in the shop dreaming,
figuring out the next gadget you've been scheming.
And I know you'll be there helping me find
that next chess move when I'm a piece behind.
So I will remember all the good times we shared,
till it's my turn to travel on the river you've dared.
And for all of his friends and family who fear missing his grin,
Take comfort in knowing you will see him again.

Harry was not only a big man but he also had a big heart, and I know that the Lord had a special place for him in heaven. May his soul and his loved ones rest in peace.
