I am sorry to have missed Harmon's funeral, but want his survivors to know that I am praying for the Lord's strength and comfort to be given to them.  Harmon was my "adopted grandad" at the Beaver County Nursing Home.  We had many good conversations about his family, his Navy service, and our mutual fondness for hunting and many of the same places in Colorado.  Harmon was a brother in Christ, and I miss him greatly.  So does his nursing home  pal Bobby Taylor, another brother.  We know that he suffered a lot from injuries and the effects of aging, and that he is in the presence of our Lord now.  Hallelujah!
