The family would like to thank the staff of Monroe Rehabilitation Center for their love and compassionate care, as it was nothing less than outstanding. The staff, nurses, and doctors serve their residents as friends and family in addition to their duties as caretakers and healthcare workers. We will always be grateful for their compassionate care, loving spirit, and welcoming hearts. We are also grateful to Hospice and Palliative Care, whose expertise helped guide our family during Harry’s last months with us.
A memorial service is planned for a later date at the Pineville Masonic Lodge where Harry was extremely proud of his membership.
