Pamela ColemanFirst let me say that it was both and honour and a privilege to care for Mr. Stirling. I am so grateful for men and women like him who are willing to serve their country. Each time we lose a veteran, freedom's light grows a little dimmer. May God bless his family in this time of loss. May you find peace and comfort. Celebrate his life with joy and laughter. He truly was a remarkable man.
Joyce Sanders. Nee StirlingHarvey was my Big Brother, and although there was 13 years age gap we always had a good relation ship. My childhood memories of Harvey was always seeing him in Naval Uniform, when he was home on leave he would stand at the top of Main Street ( Dundee) and wait fior me cumming home from Primary School. I am proud to say that Harvey won many a Decoration during his Royal Navy Service, including being mentioned in Dispatches. God rest your sole.

Audrey ProcunierDear Vicky and family, My thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of a loving husband ,father and grandfather.Harvey always had a warm hello and a smile. He will be missed by many. Audrey Procunier
Brian WithersAs an old shipmate of Harvey's, I was sad to hear that he had "Crossed the bar". He served his country well and was a good husband and father. I will miss him even though we were only internet friends in his retirement. Look after yourself Vicky, my thoughts are with you in this time of your loss.
Kayley BuckAlthough I only knew Harvey for a number of months being a casual staff member assisting on Juniper, my days were always more enjoyable when I had the opportunity to speak with Harvey. Sharing a Scottish ancestry, Harvey's stories of life in Scotland were always enlightening, reminding me of stories my Scottish grandfather told me as a child. I will never forget the way Harvey's face would light up as he talked about serving his country. Harvey was truly a remarkable man and he will be greatly missed among the staff at peopleCare.
Julie RobsonLove is sent from us all in North Devon... to Uncle Harvey who I remember having a 'funny accent' as a child and made me laugh, spending time with me when we visited Canada and who definitely made mum laugh; she will always remember him fondly and smile when she thinks about what he always asked her! Hugs to my special Auntie and to my cousins Richard and Andrew at this sad time. xxx
