Celebrating the life of Harry Lee Edwards
Thank you for signing Harry Lee Edwards's Guestbook
Harry was my second cousin. My Mom and his Mom were double first cousins. I remember visiting his Mom Edna when I was a kid. I remember Harry was either in military or just returned. He taught me how to spit shine my shoes. To me he was cool. Over the years we saw each other on occasion but lost track of him. I am sorry for your loss. I just discovered his passing on this website. firstname.lastname@example.org

From day one you welcomed me into your family! I will always remember our conversations, especially when we sat in the garage together and just chatted like we were lifelong friends. You were a sweet, gentle soul and you will be truly missed. I will make sure to tell your Grandbabies about the first time you held them and how you would tear up at the site of them. You will be their Guardian Angel. May you rest in peace and please keep an eye on my sweet blessings. Missed by many, loved by all. xoxo
