I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways. Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun. Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.

  2. Harry, you’re my sunshine that lights my path to brighter tomorrows. Our visit was so very special. As you hugged me goodbye and let me know you were in a good place, at peace in your heart and mind, accepting God’s love and welcoming embrace, I felt a true sense of serenity. There’s nothing but love in our hearts when we think of you. It was our privilege and honor knowing you, we feel blessed that you were part of our lives. Our heartfelt condolences to Ding and family. God keep you in his loving care. We’re here for you, just a phone call away.

  3. We were all saddened to hear of Harry’s passing. Although we lived on opposite coasts for most of his life, we always had a close relationship and enjoyed his visits. We wish to express our sincere condolences to you Ding and your family.

  4. Harry was such an energetic person. I remember when he was a young executive and had me stay with him in New York City. What an adventure for a young person. I admired his always looking for the next project and challenge, and understood that he was involved in working with younger people as well. My condolences and best wishes to Ding and her family in this difficult time.

  5. So long for now, Harry. What a wonderful day it was when you were born ( I had just turned 13 and Lawrence turned 14 on your arrival) and to see how happy “Pop” Langdon was to have to have a son. I have many many fond family memories of our family and families living in Charles Town and vicinity. It was a great place to grow up.

    Ding, the love you and Harry shared is a blessing to cherish and to be remembered by you and all of us who loved him. Thank you for loving Harry.

  6. Harry..It was an honor to be one of you Pall Bearers today along with your friends. It was a beautiful day in California where you and I love to live. Your service was lovely.!
    I have so many fond memories of playing with you when I was a child when you were in school at Virginia Tech. We had so many fun times in Charles Town at the Farm. There was a wonderful lunch after your service and the room was filled with smiles and joy just as you would have wanted it to be. Elizabeth was with me and I am so glad you got to meet her back in June. Ding and the kids will come and visit Martha in Blacksburg soon and I shall keep on working hard as you told me to do and at some point in the not to distant future we will see each other again !

  7. You had prepared me for my first visit to your home town to expect that you would not be referred to as Harry but by a different name. And so it was that everyone called you Luke. The origin of that name started with your father who was a doctor of veterinary medicine who studied and loved the bible as was so common with his generation. As a child, your father had great hopes for you and your life as parents do and he instructed you that if you would be as good a man as Luke, also a doctor, in the bible that you would surely be a good man. Perhaps as a reminder, you were thereafter known as Luke. Something you and I had in common was the utmost love for our fathers. As a father yourself, coming to fatherhood late in life as your own father did with your birth, you were smitten with Andrew as he came to be with you. It has been observed that many men don’t relate to their children at very young ages but no matter Andrew’s age from infant to teenager you were devoted to him, his life and well being. This was one measure among many others where your love and generosity for your fellow man, albeit your beloved son, realized the aspirations in the name bestowed upon you by your father.
