Steve and I met Harry and Sue when we moved into our home in 1992.  Steve and I knew right away that we were blessed to have such great neighbors.   Harry was always friendly, smiling and saying the nicest things.  He was also  very intelligent and could carry on the most interesting conversations.

Harry thought the world of his beautiful wife Sue and always complemented her, of course that was Harry just being Harry!

He will be missed, especially being seen walking in the neighborhood almost every day listening to his music or books.  The illness may have taken Harry too soon, but boy do Steve and I feel lucky to have known him as long as we did.  Harry made the commandment Love Thy Neighbor, easy!

In due time until we meet again Friend!

Love Steve and Renee Saulnier

Love you Susie,
