Please accept my deepest sympathies upon the death of Harry. He attended our church for a period of time a few years ago, and I was so pleased to get to know him. He was indeed a fine Christian gentleman with a kind and gentle spirit. I know that he brought great joy to his family and friends. May God bring you all comfort and peace. Rev. David Huffman, Trinity Presbyterian Church, Raleigh
