#287703 - 07/08/08 07:55 PM Harry Burnett passes on
SP Daily Offline
Hello to our old friends from Belize

This is a very sad day - Harry, my lovely husband of almost 40 years, died yesterday late afternoon in hospital where he had spent the past week trying to get over a bout of pneumonia. He's at peace now though after battling the horrible disease, Multiple System Atrophy.

Harry wanted a party, no funeral service, so we are having a party on Thursday and no-one is allowed to wear suits or dressy stuff - only casual clothes allowed. I've already told the funeral director that Harry is going to be dressed in an old Playador tee shirt, shorts and sandals - his uniform when he was in Belize and in summer up here.

Could you please tell everyone who knew Harry the sad news.

Sandra

Thanks Jesse. Harry and Sandra were always such a hoot!! I can see him wanting to party his way on to the next life.

We did have some great times at the Hotel Playador didn't we?

Please pass on our condolences.

A note from my parents:

"Sandra, sorry we can't make the party. we have only good memories about those Crazy Canuck days. Harry was a one-off".

We had known about Harry's condition for some time and Sandra said she never thought she would see Harry reduced to sipping his beer through a straw. He enjoyed what he could as long as he could.
We have had our thoughts and prayers with sandra and their boys and will continue to pray that they find peace now that Harry is in a better place.
We bought unit #2-B and was the first condo up and rentable at Playador. It will always be Playador to me.

It's been ten years since I last saw Harry, Sandra and his son. I cried today when I read the news. I spent a few months in A.C. back in '98, and Harry was just like a father to me. I hope Sandra knows that his smile lives on in many peoples memories. I spent practically everyday at the Playador, and will never ever forget the kindness and generosity of Harry and Sandra. Pabil roasts on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the time Henry pulled some strings and chartered a private plane for his son and I after we missed the last flight back from the mainland. I could go on and on. I extend my prayers to Sandra and her boys, I am so so sorry for their loss. And I thank them for such grand and fond memories.
