There are no events scheduled.
My prayers and thoughts are with the family. I had worked with Harlan at Snyder's from 1996 to 2000 at crossroads. He was the best boss ever. He will be missed.
Harlan will be greatly missed. He always pitched in and helped wherever he was needed. We fondly remember Harlan and Bill grilling burgers at many Arc picnic's in 90+ weather. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of Harlan's family, particularly Marcia and Cameron.
