    My sincere thoughts and prayers for Ms. Margie and all of Mr. Harry’s family and friends. I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Mr. Harry while he served as President of the Wyndham Ocean Boulevard IV association. He and Ms. Margie were always smiling, friendly, and put all those around them at ease. He certainly did encourage me and others, while always setting an example of a Christ follower. He will be greatly missed and always thought of fondly! Your friend in Christ, Elaine Cox

    My prayers of comfort for you, Margie, and your dear family. I always enjoyed serving with Harry at the Aldersgate events. He has always been so kind to me. He will be greatly missed. What an awesome man of God. The last time I saw him was Aldersgate 2018 in North Carolina and we were serving as hosts for the prophetic ministry there. I always looked forward to being around him. He has a way of making everyone feel good and have fun. I am very sad to hear of his passing. 🙏🏻😘

    Harry will be missed by many but missed well, remembering his humor, his generosity, his love for Margie but especially his passion for leading others to the One he now sees face to face. So, yes, we are missing you, dear friend, but we know that we will one day be with you, face to face with the Lord who receives all into His Kingdom who profess Jesus Christ as their Messiah. In that Kingdom there is no more pain, no more tears, no more night! Praying for all of us waiting here as you have journeyed there.
