Memories Timeline


  1. Haryln, was very spécial person to my grandmother. They shared so much happiness together. I am so sorry for your loss and sending prayers to all of you during this time.

  2. This is Steve Packard, son of Lu and Bob Packard. My mom and dad knew Harlyn and Pat for years back in the '80s in St. Louis. I always remember Harlyn getting my dad to laugh whenever they got together! He was one of my parents' favorite people, that's for sure.
    My mom lives with my wife and me in Jefferson City, but is unable to travel these days. (We lost my dad about six years ago). She wanted me to send her condolences to your family and say that you are in her prayers.

  3. Harlyn and I were friends in Springfield, Mo. He and Pat and myself went all through school together. In 1951 we enlisted in the Navy together and left Springfield together in a blinding snow storm. I hadn't seen him in years but always had good memories of him. I just now heard of his passing. My prayers go out to all of his friends and family.
