    Harry was a dear friend with whom I played many rounds of golf. Everyday you knew he was truly a friend who cared. He shared with his golfing buddies his life changing event in Winston-Salem when he accepted Jesus Christ in the back of an ambulance on his way to Bowman Grey Hospital. His testimony influenced three men in our golfing group in the last 14 months who also accepted Jesus as their Savior. Harry's friendship changed lives. He had regrets about his relationship with his family, but he had turned that over to a much higher power. I will greatly miss my friend and am sorry I cannot be there today due to another commitment, but my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Harry was like a big brother to me growing up. Sweet, funny, full of energy and life. We reconnected recently, and he seemed as sweet as ever. To Ann, his family and friends, I am sorry for your loss...I know it is huge.

    Harry will always have a special place in my heart as well as for my sister, Kathi. Harry and our sister Carol were high school sweet hearts at Fletcher High School in Neptune Beach, Florida. Carol and Harry remained good friends long after graduation and always enjoyed seeing one another at class reunions. My deep sympathy to Ann, his sister Barbara and his many friends .
