Aunt Marge: We are saddened here in New Jersey after learning of Harry's passing. We offer our sincere condolences to you and to Harry's family and friends. Growing up I remember the times our family's spent together in Medina. While it was a long time ago, I still recall the road trips you included me on to Bob's farm somewhere in Pennsylvania, where Harry and I helped the local farmer herd his cows, and the trip to Bob's house on Long Island. And I remember the winters in Medina and learning to ice skate with Harry around the trees in the flooded woods across from your home on West Oak Orchard Street. That was another time, but one fondly remembered thanks to you, Uncle Harry, and Harry.

I'll always remember the first time I met Butch. Donny (Nick) and I were recently married. He told me that he had a cousin who would be stopping by and that he had been working undercover as a policeman. When he came to the door, he was still in his "undercover" attire, meaning a little scary, but then he smiled and said, "Hi, I'm Butch. It's okay." And it was.....he was a good man.

Marjorie,
There are many hearts that ache for you at this time of loss...
And though no one can take away your sorrow, may the support and concern of others help give you the strength you need from day to day.
I know what it's like to lose a child. It's just not natural,no matter what their age.
I hope that you will find comfort in the memories you have of Harry.
I love you, sweet lady.
A friend always,
Peggy and William Gray
