    I have so many fond and lasting memories of Harry they are difficult to enumerate. They would have to include playing guitar duets with him and his “special guitar” that he brought home from Germany after his tour of duty. His Elvis impersonations, love of his Mercury and 50’s Ford products were Harry at his finest and most memorable hours. We spent many days together deer hunting down by the old “Lamb Road” near Grampa Kenniston’s old homestead in Grand Valley and some occasional target practice and annual sighting-in of our rifles before hunting season. This certainly only scratches the surface of my memories of Harry. Time has a way of interrupting continuity and unfortunately after the move to Missouri we had only occasional contact and seldom had more than a few hours together at family get-togethers after that. But, the relationship we had always remained in spite of time and distance. Harry was a “one of a kind” who will be missed. While his time ended early, he will live long in our hearts and memories. My most sincere condolences to Joyce, Bo, Julie and the rest of the family. Our thoughts are with you at this most difficult time.

    Dear Joyce and family, My sympathy to all in the passing of Harry. Last time I saw him was in December at the Holts Summit parade and he knew then he did not have much longer here on this earth. One thing for sure, Harry was more than ready to meet his Lord. Joyce, you are to commended for all the care you gave him and I know this was not easy. I will never forget his kindness to his next door neighbors, the Ashworths. His home will not seem the same w/o seeing him enjoying the sunny days on his porch or working on his vehicles. May God bless. With deepest sympathy. Joann Cross

    To the Lamb family, we are very sorry for your loss. We would sit at Hopewell Baptist Church and visit with Harry. He was always such a nice man to visit with. May God give you comfort.
