I remember my Uncle Harry being a tall, friendly man, and through the warm stories told by my mother, Eloise. I only wish the miles between our families had allowed us to know each other better. May he rest well, and all my love to Aunt Mary and the family.

My love and sympathy to the Glick family. Such fond memories as friends while living in the Mount Olympus neighborhood. I so loved and admired all of you. Harry was and is an outstanding man who has influenced so many for good as he has shared his testimony of the Savior as well as his several talents.
I am sorry to have missed his funeral, but wasn't able to attend due to illness. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Steve, Lisa and Family - Harry sounds like such a wonderful man. None of us can really imagine what he experienced as a bombardier during the War - one of the greatest generation. Just as impressive is how he came home to live a meaningful and productive life. All our love at this time of loss.
