I worked in Dr. Harden's office in 1976 for a short period of time. He and his staff were kind and welcoming since I was new to Myrtle Beach. After this many years, I remember him fondly. In his waiting room was a framed document from the LGH Yacht Club naming him as Vice Commodore which gave him a big laugh.
He was a good man and although I knew him briefly, he made a huge impression on me.

I am so sorry to learn of Tom's passing. We always enjoyed talking together, often about old times in orthopaedics. I always looked forward to our times at Parris Island together.
Stay Well,
