Liz, Dan, LeRoy and Family---There are few words to express the heart breaking and over whelming sadness of the pasing of a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. Wish we could be there for support but know you are all in our thoughts and prayers. I know our friend Harry is at. Peace in the arms of our lord. Just as God is watching over us all and helping us to heal our broken hearts. Harry gave so much of himself to all and especially his family. When I think of him which is often I remember his strong love and dedication to all of his family. He is still watching over all of us. I have a small poem " Good byes are not forever, Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean we will miss you until we meet again. And we will meet again. Rest in pease and go with God our friend Harry. You will forever be in our hearts. Ron And BJ Pehmoeller
