  1. My prayers are with the family at this time on the passing of Harvey. He left you with beautiful memories that you can treasure throughout your life. Not only did he serve his country but served his community and made a difference. The angels rejoiced when God called Harvey home and now He is asleep in Jesus’s arms.
