    I have so many fond memories of visiting the Harmon farm as we were growing up. Aunt Mildred was so loving, always smiling and with kind words to encourage us. I loved our visits with my cousins, aunt and uncle. While she will be greatly missed here on earth, I know she is celebrating her first days of eternity in the house of our Lord and savior and I am joyful for her! I love you Aunt Mildred.
