Harry was indeed a unique character. Guerry and I have such special memories of he and Gaile and all our cruises and time together. We will treasure the memories forever. We are blessed to have known him. Rest in Peace Harry and we will meet again. Our love and prayers are still with you and the family.

It is such a very sad day for Cruisemates. I was indeed so honored to get to meet Harry "Da Coot" and Gaile last December and they were everything all of you said they were.

He will be so sadly missed and I'll offer up prayers immediately for Harry, Gaile and their family.

The prayers have been sent.

First it was Fran, then Helen and now Harry. This has been a sad year for the Cruismates family. Gaile, you have the deepest sympathy from Peggy and me. We wish you the very best and have fond memories of cruising with you and Harry. A I have said before, may we all cruise again on the Celestial Ship.

WOW,,,Vita and I were sailing last week, and I had no idea that Harry was ill! What a shock! Our thoughts, and prayers are with Gaile, and as usual, if we can do anything at all for you, Gaile, please call. I feel terrible that we didn't know anything about Harrys illness! Please keep us informed about arrangements, etc. God bless you Gaile!

Very sad news. I was fortunate to spend a lot of great times on cruises with Tweety and Harry; and like anyone who did there are so many wonderful memories.

I'll miss Harry's wonderfully abrasive ways. RIP!

Prayers for Gaile and the family during this time. I never got to meet Da Coot but so enjoyed reading what everyone said about him. He sounds like a great guy. May God wrap his arms around him and take him to see Fran & Helen so they can visit until the rest of us get there.

Harry and Gaile are good friends; we had so many wonderful times after they moved to Florida. We are so sorry to hear the news. This is the third death in recent weeks among are friends; as bad things come in three, I hope this is the last in a long, long, time.

Gaile, our prayers are with you. I still remember the time you and Harry came to see me in the hospital; I am forever thankful.

The prayers and good wishes from everyone has helped to ease the pain a bit. After 50 years I kinda grew attached to the old guy, so I'm gonna miss him terribly, but he is no longer in pain and I'm sure he's in heaven now bowling with the angels.

We are having him sent up to Delaware for the viewing and the services since most of our family are there. It's a very sad day but he is resting in peace. Thanks to all.
