The following lines were written by a friend in loving remembrance of Harry Ackerman:
We will miss him, yes, we'll miss him,
Never more we'll see his face,
He has left us now forever;
No one else can take his place.
Happy was he, always happy,
Taking sunshine everywhere,
Lifting from the hearts of loved ones
Many a heavy load of care.
In your church you will miss him,
Miss him in your work of love,
But perhaps you soon will meet him
In that happy home above.
Wife, children, though you loved him,
Jesus loved him more than you.
You will meet him in that Heaven,
If you only here prove true.
You will miss him in your home,
Miss him in your joys and pain,
But we hope to meet in Heaven,
Where we ne'er shall part again.
During all these years we've known him,
Pleasant was his every way,
Loving all and watching, waiting,
For the last sad parting day.
