    Prayers for the family and friends. Words can never convey the sadness of losing cousin Harry. GOD tells us that there is a time for every purpose under heaven, a time to live and a time to die, a time to laugh and a time to cry. Trust in HIS wisdom and keep Faith. Harry will forever live in my memories and I know that GOD has him in his loving arms. Miles may separate us physically but there is no distance between hearts and memories. I love you all and will pray for your comfort and peace.

    I knew Harry for a long time. He always had a saying everytime
    we met. I worked in the P.M Shop and had a great working exper-
    ience with harry.
    His brother was my boss at ku for a number of years and had a
    nice work era.

    We are sorry he had such a short life. He enjoyed every second of
    it i know. We are so sorry for his loss and the family.
