I will remember my uncle Harry as a wise, kind, friendly and cheerful person, who lead a very full life. I always enjoyed meeting with him over the years, in Hong Kong, New Zealand, and when they were visiting the UK. It was always good to hear Harry's stories and reminiscences of his travels. His brother Alan always spoke of him with love and respect. Harry will be greatly missed.

We have always felt extremely privileged and fortunate to have been Harry's next door neighbour. The entire Dewhurst family made us so welcome when we moved to Auckland and they were fun, generous and wise people. In later years when asking Harry how his grandchildren were he told me each one's achievements, like their cricket score, spelling test results and current news of each. He was a caring thoughtful person. and he will be loving remembered by us all. The Mansell Family

For Parry

There are so many things I will never forget about you, Parry.

At the age of 6, you taught me what a palindrome' was and gave me a dollar every time I could tell you it back. You described your morning medication as if it were your breakfast: this one's my tomato, this one's my egg, this one's my toast and marmalade... so we never wondered what they really were. You greeted us at your door, every single time, by cheekily asking Gran - Do we know these people? You told us stories from your life (sometimes more than once....) and you blew us all away with your grasp of words and numbers.

Remembering all these things, I realise just how much of a role model you really are. Growing up, you showed us that it was right to be kind and to smile all the time. You instilled in us all a love of travel and adventure. You made us feel like it was cool to be smart and educated. And you showed us Dewhurst boys how to be a true gentleman.

These characteristics live on in all of us and, with that, there's no doubt all of these amazing things about you are what continues to define the Dewhurst's. And the Graham's. And the Abbott's. And the Burdens. And the McBrides. You truly set the standard to which we all aspire.

I'll never forget when, in one of my recent visits home, I asked - how are you, Parry? and you simply answered ...happy! along with your trademark smile.

To me, that sums you up perfectly and it will forever be how I remember you.

I feel so blessed to have known you Parry and I can't wait to tell my own kids about you.
I'll love and miss you always.

David
