I am so sorry to hear about Harry. He is someone that no matter where I was or what I was doing he would always stop to talk to me. He always made me feel very special. I’ll never forget When Kayla was Born he would tell everyone that I was pregnant with his baby. He loved Kayla when he would see her he always had to say something about how’s his girl doing and all that kind of stuff. He was a very special person. Love to the family love to Sharon and Mary and Richard. I always felt like we were family no matter what.
