    As far as I can remember, I always viewed Uncle Harry as a “man’s man”. Firm when necessary, confident, and always caring, encouraging, and thoughtful. A great legacy left for many to follow. Love and prayers to Cynthia, Diana, Jae, and Melissa during this time of grief and adjustment. Much love to you all.

    Mr. Doyle was my neighbor before he moved to Collier Park and the time I got to know him I came to adore this kind and loving man. I was blessed by being gifted a dresser that I will cherish even more plus a Windberg picture that hangs in my home. These two items will always be a reminder of his true kindness. I missed him when he moved and I will truly miss him now. Until we meet again Mr. Doyle.

    Diana says:
