Not sure what to say?

Harry played a big part in my life as a young boy. I still have vivid memories of the things we did together. He took the time to make the time to take me out and show me things. He never drank, smoked, or cussed, even when he smashed his hand. I have great respect for him.

Our deepest sympathies to you family as you celebrate and grieve a life well lived. You will have so many memories to carry you through the days ahead. We plan on seeing you tomorrow. God's blessings.

Mrs. Klyve was my teacher in country school for grades 4th 5th and 6th. I remember Harry getting the heater started to take the chill off our school room winter mornings.
Harry would climb the ladder to hang the drapes for our Christmas programs.
He would clear the snow drifts so our parents could get in the driveway to pick us up at the end of the day. Harry was always so helpful.
Rest in Peace

To the Klyve Family, I deepest condolences. Tom you and you entire Family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I met Harry when I was about 5 and we had gone to an auction in Benson. He was buying many things and I was watching him and looking at what he got.
He got a whole box full of Christmas Nutcrackers....we shared a conversation about them and he asked me if I had any. I said NO, but they were pretty. After he paid for his stuff, he came back to where I was with grandma and told me to pick 2 out of his box. He meant it!
I am now 15 and those two nutcrackers are on my dresser at...

Gaye, Vickie, Dean and families, my sincere sympathy on Harry's passing. He lived a full and rewarding life. A hero to our country and his family. May he rest in peace and be reunited in heaven with his family who passed before him. I can imagine that reunion in my mind right now.

May the wonderful memories carry you through the...
