I'm so, so sorry to hear about Pops. I have many fond memories of him while I was growing up at his house on Windsor Avenue, always so kind to me and funny. I've eaten plenty of his Steak'm sandwiches. He will definitely be missed. Thinking of you all, sending you love and light.

We have a family because of Harry - you guys! I'm a scatterbrain n do to much alot, but please say, Des stop I need to visit!! I will.
Your grandpa loved to just visit, we've been lost around here having no fence time. It was ok, because we knew he was finally out of Delores Clairbornes, and with you guys, by far the happiest place of his being!
In his death the fence stands empty, but this time he is with Jesus.
We are grateful for that fence. It's where we met and became family, and our families grew (lol literally) Our hearts for each other grew too.
From the fence we enjoyed daily living with Bible studies, cards against humanity games, partner in crime times, tie dying, late night, all day talk, chatter, tv a thons, reality, nonsense, evening fires, food, fishing talk, a few beers & cold teas, gardening, minor & major decision making, Bindy forever sneaking under the fence to hang with Harry. Anything that can happen between 7 yr neighbors, daily stuff, did.
Harry always had my back, all of our backs, we can't thank him enough for his many, "Harry saved my day!"
Harrys life was a gift, he gave Chris & I himself, he also gave us a gift of Marsha -if ever I need a chief warrior I'd call on her, we gained a family, lol even we have some fence times to remember.. just like Harry this family has always been kind hearted with love for us, thank you!
We know we are not Harry/Grandpa but, we will be here for you today and forever more, just as he did, just as Jesus did for us all.
We have learned in the past 6 weeks with the death of Tyler 25, Mark 57, Harry 72 that a 5 minute visit is better than none. I learned life changes in a click, that unconditional love n kindness is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.

I don't want to leave a legacy
I don't care if they remember me
Only Jesus-Casting Crowns
When I think of Harry I see a sweet man with large family who has abundant love for him, I see a man who loves & lives like Jesus with skin on.
Thank you for sharing Harry with us, forever he will be in our hearts.
We love you as many times as there are fences in the world!
Des & Chris Bibb
