Dear David --Harry was our hero too. You have described him so well. I think other than the fact fighting just was not Harry's style - he wondered "if I die --- does that mean I didn't fight hard enough -- does that mean I lost?" so he just preferred his slogan to be "I'm learning to live with my cancer". Ultimately, we know in the end that he did win. As our pastor said in his funeral service "To live is Christ, To die is gain". We think of you as one of heros too! Liove, Sandi

It is always hard to hear of one of our Warriors passing. I didn't know Harry but I read his blog. He was a courageous Warrior and went through a lot. He courage and endurance will pave the way for others. Thank you Harry

What a great entry about my dad- Harry Weisenberger. He was a hero to all of us. I was fortunate to spend the last few days with him as he hung on for dear life. He stayed true to himself up until the end. The loss of my dad has given me a pit in my stomach that I pray some day will go away. He is in a better place now and my memories are of him as a healthy dad doing all the things he loved best; spending time at the lake, fishing in his old boat, reading to his grandkids, doing projects with my mom, writing and making lists in his 'planner', working and spending time with family. I miss him!

Dearest David --- You said it so well - thank you from our family. We will still be here to cheer you.
Liove, Sandi
