Loutzenhiser-Jordan Online Guestbook for Rev. Harry Berry Wood, Jr.
I know this is long overdue but your dad/grandpa was on my heart today. Harry really helped me in many ways as my supervising pastor during my time at Windwoood Presbyterian back in 1978/79. He taught me how to be a pastor to the people. He encouraged me and helped give me direction through that year. He was also the one who baptized both my sons; Nathan and Scott. Your dad/grandpa touched many lives and I give thanks that mine was one amongst the many. God bless and keep each and everyone of you. Blessings, Dennis
My condolences to the family. In 1967/68 I was an exchange student with the Bill Wood family. During summer vacation we visited with Peg and Harry. I will always remember them as warm and welcoming.
Our heartfelt sympathy to each of you. The world has lost a wonderful man who lived out his Christian faith and the Great Commandment well. We lost track of Harry and Peg, but still thought of them from time to time. There were times in my ministry when I came upon a difficult situation and I asked myself "How would Harry have handled this?" I think he touched the lives of many people including ours.
The Reverend Dr. Carolyn Visser & Benton Visser
My deepest sympathy to all the Wood family. When we moved to Houston in 1970 and joined Windwood Church, Harry became our minister and a very dear friend. He had a talent for making you "want" to volunteer at the church. But, if you didn't, he volunteered you and assigned you to a job. Peg, Corky and I had some really fun times working at the church. Sometimes, Harry would just roll his eyes at us and look the other way. Harry married two of our children. One while he was still ministering and the other after he had retired but agreed to come back to Windwood to perform the ceremony. When my husband, Bill, passed away in Dec. 2011, he wrote me a condolence letter. He was that kind of person. I always looked forward to the letter Harry wrote with his Christmas card. I will miss his yearly update. Praise the Lord that Harry and Peg are again together. They were such a true example of what love really meant. To the family, remember the good times. I know you had many as my family will also remember the many, many good times we had with Harry and Peg. I love you all. Jo Ella Toller

What a lovely tribute. I grew up with Harry's son in Cypress, Texas and knew the Wood family during the time they lived there. I was always welcomed by Mr. and Mrs Wood. Mr. Wood was a very kind man. Blessings to him and his family.
Harry was the kindest person we have ever met. That kindness, along with his unshakable faith and practicality made for a incomparable pastor and friend. His impact on our lives will last an eternity. Christmas will not be the same without "Harry's Poem". Our sincerest sympathies to those who were dearest to him: his family.

Deepest sympathies to all the Woods' kids from Lynn's daughter, Joy. I can't remember it, of course, but my mom used to always like to remind me that Harry Wood baptized me as a baby at St. Luke's in Amarillo and for some reason that made me feel really special! It was wonderful seeing Kathy at Wally's homegoing, and I still have some of the pottery Megsie made for Lynn. I miss my mom and dad so much, but knowing that they are reunited with their precious friends, Peggy and Harry, and are celebrating with Jesus truly fills my heart. I will keep you all in my prayers during this time of loss. Your dad was an amazing man, a precious friend to my dad, and I loved him so.

To the Wood family,
I will always remember your father and what an important influence he was on my faith. Each time I share the story of my coming to Christ I have to include Rev. Wood. His warmth and approachability helped me to accept the Gospel in the 1970's when such values were under attack. I pray for all of you in this time and give thanks for all that your dad did. He was a fine witness.
We will miss Harry and his sweet disposition. I never saw hime without a smile lighting up his entire face. God Bless you all.
I grew up at Windwood in Houston when Harry was there, he was such a kind man. Just thinking of him brings a smile to my face. Praying comfort for all of you and knowing that he is reunited now with your Mom in Heaven. God Bless!
Sincere condolences to Rev. Wood's family. He was a great person.
