Condolence & Memory Journal

To Elaine and all of Harry's family.

Nelson and I are so sorry to hear of Uncle Harry's passing. Harry was my uncle and I always have fond memories of a young Uncle Harry who stopped by and visited us on the farm on Millport Road in my young years. As years went by we would see Uncle Harry and Aunt Elaine at the Neff Reunion that was held for many years at the Strasburg Park.

Uncle Harry always reminded me of Grandma Neff; he had her smile and favored her so much.

I regret that Nelson and I will not be able to attend the funeral today because of prior plans. it's always a good time to see all the cousins and Aunts and Uncles.

Blessings, love and sympathy to all of you!
