From: Whitney H Mar 29 2020 3:56AM I use to work at Woodlands. Harry was by far one of my favorites. He was kind and even bought staff boxes of chocolates around Christmas time. He was a great one that's for sure. I knew his routine like the back of my hand and the way he liked things done. I regret not going to visit him the last couple months. Hearing that he passed sure hurt my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I will see you later Harry.
Much love to the family

From: Carroll and Patty Justice Mar 30 2020 12:53PM Joy, Andy and family, we were so sorry to learn of Harry’s passing. At the age of 93 I feel his proudest accomplishment was his wonderful family. He will be missed by all who knew him. From: Betty Barrett Mar 30 2020 3:10PM I am sorry to hear of Harry's passing. He was a lovely man. He really loved living at Woodlands, and always seemed to enjoy coming to the dining room even when he was in health care. The staff took such good care of him, and his friends among the residents were happy when he visited. He had a long and good life, very proud and fond of his fine family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. From: Harry Hager Mar 30 2020 3:37PM To Harry’s family. I will certainly miss all the fun and good times I had with him at our lunches and sporting events during the years. Our last lunch was only about 3 weeks ago. He will be missed by all.

From: The Cheetham family Mar 31 2020 2:14PM We are so sorry for loss of Harry. He was truly a great individual and a lot of fun to be around. I’ll always remember how funny he was when he told stories—sometimes he meant to be funny, other times it was funny just because of the way he told it. He was always in a good mood every time I was with him. He persevered through his many physical challenges and didn’t let them hold him back. He will surely be missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him. I’m sure Marge was there to greet him and they are happily reunited. We offer prayers for all of his family and friends.
