It is with deep regret I announce the passing of Harry, my brother-in-law, early this morning.
For those who do not know it, my sister is Maggie May at Nuts In May and I saw her and some of the family today and this evening.
Harry had been battling prostate cancer for over 15 years and over the last 18 months his health gradually declined and eventually he was taken by pneumonia.
He was a charming and very kind man, a good husband to my sister, a good father and grandfather, and a good friend to me. He was a very friendly man and never had an unkind word to say about anyone.
He was a brick layer and at his peak he laid 3000 bricks a day building houses.
He will be greatly missed ~ he was a devout Christian and he, like us, believe this is not the end for him but just the beginning of a life which will be everlasting and happy beyond measure and understanding. Maggie and Harry will be reunited at the appointed hour, never to be parted again.
No more pain, no more sorrow
I would like to think that my dear departed wife, Maria, came to meet him and take him by the hand to lead him into paradise. She was such a caring person, that is precisely the sort of thing she would do.
God bless Harry R.I.P.
