    Rest in peace my sweet father!!!! Thank you for all the love you have given me in my life and teaching me all of life’s lessons. There was never a day that you were not there for me. I miss you already and you have only been gone a day. How will I last a lifetime? They say time heals all wounds let’s hope it heals mine. I love you with all of my heart.

    To Dad,

    There are so many memories and times of trial that we remember. We laughed and joked and loved. Behind everything that was lived, said and done was a firm foundation that you taught us. May you continue on in your journey and know that you are remembered with love and the utmost affection. With all our love, Elaine and Bill

    To Harvey(and family).

    You were my Former Father in law, and the grandfather of my children Samantha and Aaron, and I was always fond of you. You were always kind, loving and generous man to me and and I was a proud to call you Dad. In many ways you were as much of a true dad to me as if it had been biological.

    Your Humor and wisdom was always welcome and your heart always warm. The world was better place with you here and is a more empty place with you gone. You wer a Mentor, guide, friend, and a beacon of light to all you encountered

    I give condolences and love to Harvey’s wife Theresa and his children Elaine [and Bill], Mark [and Carol],and Diane and to all of his extended family, and praise for his life…

    I found a little Jewish Prayer that I hope is appropriate here…

    “May God console you among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem (Ha’makom yenahem etkhem betokh she’ar avelei Tziyonvi’Yerushalayim).”

    Peace be your Journey
    Dan and Aristia Partiss

    I remember my grandmother being so proud of Harvey he and I were named after her husband our grandfather. He was always there for me when there was a problem. When I lost my husband he was so helpful and caring. Karen loved him so much and now they are together again. So sorry for your loss.

    Theresa and family, very sorry to hear of the passing of Harvey. It has been many years since we talked but I will always remember him as a friend and mentor. Forty years ago he trained me at Met Life and I always remember his thoughtfullnes and caring of other people. I knew him as a devoted husband and father. I was blessed to have himn as a manager and friend.
