I am so sorry for your great loss. May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" and "comforts all who mourn" (Isaiah 61:1, 2) sustain your family during this challenging time. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy

I would like to offer my sincerest of condolences of the passing of Mrs. Harkins. She was a model person and a world class Mom. Her sons are a true testament to her as a Mother. She and her Family are in my thoughts and prayers!

Tom, Ed, Ken and Don, Thanks for being great sons to my beloved Aunt Margie. I am so happy that she had all of you and that she got to have her wish and be in her home until her last breath. Having just been out there to see her (and all of you) last month, this almost seems unreal. In fact, I could not even cry until today and now that seems like all I am doing as I think of all of the precious memories over the past 68 years. Wish I could be there now (but you don't want our colds) but I will see you all after Thanksgiving. As it says in 2 Timothy 4:7- 8 --she fought the good fight and she finished her race and she kept the faith (as she so emphatically told my dad the week before he died) and now we can all see her again in the Kingdom of God where there will be no more pain or sorrow.

My sincere sympathies to all your family. Tom, your Mom was a wonderful lady and I was fortunate to have met her. She always had a beautiful smile and that little chuckle when she said something amusing. She will be missed. Take care of yourself Tom like you took care of your Mom. You were so fortunate to have so much time together. Treasure those memories. Again, my sympathies to all your family.
