Harry you definitely left your mark in the world! You will be greatly missed by all those you crossed paths with along your journey. I will always remember your inspiring stories of finding your one true love, starting your career and all the riddles you used to send me that you promised would keep me young as long as I always found the fun in them!!! I know that anyone who had the privilege of knowing you also has the privilege to share your gift of passion for life and people. Thank you for inspiring me and touching my heart, I will never forget you...
Sending much love to your wife and family.

I am pleased I have moved back to St. Louis and am able to send love for myself as well as my parents, Lois and Denver Wright. They thought highly of the Rosenberg's, as did I as a young child and a young adult.

Apparently as a young child I was asked what my daddy did for work. They say that my reply was, He did not work, he visited friends. As my father, Harry visited with a lot of friends. What a wonderful industry to be in. We all have a treasure chest filled with beautiful memories, many of Harry Rosenberg.

You are missing your husband, but I know in my heart that you are and will continue to be fine. Your children are surrounding you and I know that Harry will always be in your heart and thoughts.

Just a few years ago we lost our younger son, Steve. A friend wrote, Please know that Steve is looking down on you while he is cradled in God's arms." A year later my husband Andy passed on.

Yes, I miss them, but I am happy for them. I know they are together, with God and where there is no pain, suffering or even canes or wheel chairs. They are both happy and in good health.

I send you and your family thoughts of smiles and joy of your years together. I thank God for the relationship between you both and my parents. And I thank God for my times as a young person to have known you as such a lovely couple.

My memories are of smiles and the feeling that you both cared for the young person I was.

My love,

I met Harry before I ever got into the industry. After calling on my dad, Bill Murphy, he would be at our house and I would listen to the news of the pen industry. Harry helped my brother and I start our own company. He was one of a kind and I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to learn from him and to call him a friend.

Harry was one of the greatest men in this industry! I feel very lucky that I met him early in my career and he shared his love of promotional products with so many! He will be greatly missed.

I have so many memories of Harry who was a very regular fixture in my childhood, thanks to being quasi-adopted by the family thanks to my doppleganger/dear friend Buz. Harry was one of those dads other kids hoped would be their dad. . .he actually played like us, only usually better than us. I'm sending love to Ginny, Buz and the extended family.

Harry always had a way of making one feel as though they were the most important when conversing with him. He gave you 100% no matter who walked by! A great lesson learned. RIP Harry!

Harry had so much enthusiasm for life. It was obvious that he loved the industry as well as the people in it. He brought us all so much. He will be missed; there is no one like him.
