Always, my Uncle, always likened as an older brother to me, always a wonderful man. Always, making me smile with his dry humor, almost as dry as mine. He will always be remembered wearing his smile and loving with his warm heart. I will think of the sunny days in Big Ridge Park on Norris Lake. We shared great times running the trails together with his dear friend, James, my father. It was only just days ago, we were tackling a big burger in his favorite neighborhood restaurant, sharing warm memories old and new. What a great day for both of us. Oh, how he will be missed by all who have known him, most of all, his special grandchildren growing up without him. And don't forget, the special bond with Miss Daisy, his devoted furry pawed friend. I just hope she can understand his absence.
Harry has left the building, but never our hearts.
