Editor, Gazette-Journal:The long night is over and has come to an endIt is time that I must say goodbye to a friendHe was called home to be with his wifeHe is blessed to have won the gift of eternal lifeHe was like a father to us so confident and strongYet the battle he fought was oh so longHe kept all his honor, dignity and respectAll through his fight without a regretThis man that you know as Harry M. WardMost knew as coach or just Mr. WardTo most he was a mentor and friendYet to the lucky few he was dad or grandpa a loving manWe will miss you dear sir although we all knowYou are now wrapped in the arms of our Loving LordOur lives here now will have an empty spaceWithout you here to fill it with that smile on your faceEnjoy your new home with Christ our LordWe miss and we love you dear Mr. Ward
