We hold you all in our prayers. We know our loving and tender Father is holding all of you in His arms, and we pray He will bless you each with His comfort and strength during the months ahead. We will keep you in our prayers faithfully for we know how it is to get used to life when a beloved one goes to be with Jesus. There is the joy of knowing she is now full of joy and peace, and she and Nick and Sarah can rejoice together.

God’s peace be with the Harman family! It is at times like this when we rely on Him to comfort and remind us to be still….may Evy rest in Peace as she joins the heavenly Angels. Ron, may the God of Peace comfort you now and for ever more.
