Uncle Harry!!
Here is to memories of knocking on your door for ice cream .....
All the Christmas Eve visits to
Mt Fair Circle.....
Once Elizabeth and I walked there.....
From all those trips to the mall..... Remember when I would see you there .....
To now the passing of your soul the days of old gone by.....
May you enter the kingdom of all his majesty and glory and all his mercy be with you forever and ever in Christ our Savior!!

Love your niece Ann Marie

I have tons of memories from when I, dianna, Jennifer, and the carrieros were kids. Mr. Sutcliffe was always watching the Red Sox, rooting for them, or even upset with them when they lost a big game. He always has been a really nice guy to me and always asked how things were going when I was playing baseball and even sometimes would be at game here and there. He has always and will always be a great friend of my families and I’m sure yours too! I remember how proud of both of his daughters he always was and always let everyone know not to mess with them either. He was definitely one of the proudest fathers and husbands that were in my neighborhood growing up. I know in my heart that he is in a great place in heaven in his vip Red Sox seats watching down over his beloveds family and friends. I will always help look after his family in anyway possible which he I know he would appreciate for sure. He was a good man and his family definitely reflected that for sure. Mr. Sutcliffe I’ll always cheer for the home team and make sure I always think about what you would say about the how they are doing or look. Good or bad. God bless you guys my heart goes out to you. I’ll always be here if you need anything. God bless!
