We will miss your calm and gentle ways, your intelligent, yet humble ways.  I remember longing to see you and Aunt Dell dance again the way you did at my mothers wedding.  

You will be missed but never forgotten.

Rest in peace.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your family member, Harry. Death is often referred to as our enemy, and rightfully so. However, the scriptures foretell of a time when "the...last enemy death is to be brought to nothing."- (1 Corinthians 15:26) Soon in the near future, we will no longer have to worry about death. I have enclosed a tract that will discuss another positive hope that we can expect for the near future:

I hope that you will find this thought encouraging.
