Our prayers are with you all. He has gone to a place we only get to dream about. Sometimes, I just can’t wait to find out what he is experiencing right now !
You had him for a long time. Now, the Father, the son, and the holy ghost are taking good care of him

My sincere condolences to the Friedhoff family. Jesus Christ promised that millions now dead will live again on this earth and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful, paradisaic conditions (Psalm 37:29).

My sympathy to all the family. I loved Uncle Harry and so did Tim and my children. He always had a smile on his face. He now is in a better place and is happy.
