There are many wonderful memories of Harry, his big smile always greeting you when you walked into the church will always be remembered but one memory that reminds me of his faithful loving service is when we were painting the upstairs two large classrooms for the Jr/Sr high class. Four of us were painting. When we finished we realized we would need one more coat and planned a day to do the second coat. I wasn't looking forward to another day of painting, Harry called, he had gone up to the church and put on the second coat all by himself and the job was done. I was so thankful. That's the kind of man Harry was.
