Bea, it was so nice to see you and Harry spend your days together when he was living at Windward Gardens. From watching TV to listening to the music in the activities room to just hanging out in the dining room, it was clear you both enjoyed each other's company and that was a great gift. Deepest condolences to you, Bea, and to your family.

Leslie Curtis and Joanie Gordon

I remember Harry as a cute and fun little boy -- in our neighborhood in Camden. It was nice to see the smiling face and read of his successful adult life. I'm sure the family has lots of warm loving memories.
