To Harley's Family,
Harley was always someone that would help you out at any time. I have missed seeing him since he went to Gail's. He can now dance with Pauline in heaven. Rest in peace friend and neighbor.
With sympathy,

Our thoughts & prayers are with you. May God bless & sustain you & grant you strength, peace, grace, love, hope, serenity & a strong faith. One "Glorious Day" in God's timing we shall all join on that "Golden Shore", where Harley has been reunited with his loved ones gone before him, what a "Reunion"!! Matthew 10:30 says that every hair on our heads are numbered God is in control. Ecclesiastes 3 says that there is a time & a place & a reason & a season for everything under the Heavens. The verse also says that there is a time to be born & a time to die we can be sure that our names are written in God's book & in His timing .The spirit is eternal & Harley's spirit will forever remain with his loved ones in every bright, shining star & in every beautiful, colorful rainbow & in the clouds & the sun & the moon & in all that you say & do. We will certainly miss Harley but we know that he is a "Guardian Angel" watching over his loved ones.
I will certainly miss Harley at Square Dance & my special Polka Partner!! We never knew we were related until we met at dance. God Bless you, Cuz & Love you & will miss you.
God bless, comfort & cherish you with all your precious memories to hold near & dear to your hearts!! Unfortunately we will not be able to attend Harley's services, as we are committed to Square Dance at a nursing home to entertain the residents at the same time as the funeral. We will dedicate a dance to Harley!! We hate to miss his services but I had to organize this dance, so I am expected to be one of the dancing couples!! We send our love!!

My deepest condolences to Harley's family. I have a fond memory of Uncle Harley and my dad harvesting a wild bee tree many years ago on our farm. Uncle Harley was a very kind and generous man who loved his family.

Dear Gail, I've been thinking about you since seeing your Dad's obituary in the Sentinel. You and I are among the people who were so fortunate to have our parents for so long. And no matter when they leave us, it is hard. Be strong. My thoughts are with you. Sending blessings, Ann Van Dyke
