Hi my name is Kayla. I am a local bible student and I am so sorry for your loss. There is a very comforting scripture at Isaiah 25:8 that says soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can all look forward to a time when death will be no more. I hope that this scripture can bring some real comfort during these difficult times ahead.

My heart cried when I heard the news of Harvey’s passing – he will always hold a special place in my heart.

I was introduced to your family Christmas 1990 at your home in Red Bank - I walked into your magnificent home filled with warmth and laughter. I remember having champagne by the perfectly decorated Christmas tree, we had crown roast pork that evening, and talked for hours; I felt right at home.

As years passed we shared many happy times weddings, birthdays BoBo’s 75th,& 90th, Kurts 40th, Thanksgivings just to name a few, and unfortunately as part of life, some very somber times as well. Harvey was always THE gentlemen, so noble, always made sure Bo Bo was cared for.

Harvey had a “never let them see ya down” attitude which endeared me to him.

Our love and prayers are with you during this uncertain time.

Please – stop and take care of yourselves.
