A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
From the McLhinney Family- Harkins Staff, Thank you for all your kindness during this time of loss of our baby boy. You have gone over and beyond honoring our son and the tree of life is a beautiful tribute. We can't thank you enough.
From the Dalde Family - Tash Dalde My son, Edison James Dalde passed away. In a personal story about his life, at the end I wrote about our experience with Harkins. The phrase I used was "God's people doing God's work." Harkins came recommended by a friend who had gone through a similar situation. Patti helped me better prepare for the unpreparable. I had her in our text circle when I was announcing the arrival of our son. When they said they were praying for us, I knew they were on their knees covering my family in prayer. They helped make an unbearable moment ... unforgettable.
From the Jester Family - Grandmother Shirley Boquist - You helped my daughter and her husband, Erika and Nathan Jester with the final services for their stillborn baby, Theodore Patrick Jester. They were so blessed by all you did for them, the way you cared for Teddy while he was in your care and the words of comfort you shared. May God bless your work with these little ones.
From Jennifer Wienhold - My husband and I both welcomed and said our goodbyes to our first child July 14th 2018. Our daughter Wrenley Mae was stillborn just shy of 38 weeks gestation. To say how grateful I am to have met Patti and fellow members of Harkins Funeral Home is an understatement. They treated us like family; with upmost respect and sincerity as we grieved the loss of our beautiful daughter and prepared for her cremation ceremony. Patti has continued to reach out to us from time to time and it means so much to know how much they truly care for us and that they remember Wrenley. Harkins was there for us through the worst time of our lives. It meant a lot to know how they carefully wrapped our daughter as if she was one of their own whenever transporting her and that they prayed over her and for us. I pray if you ever find yourself in the unimaginable and heartbreaking reality of child loss that you can find comfort in the genuine care of Patti, Gone Too Soon, and Harkins Funeral Home.
"We miss you everyday, miss you in every way. But we know there's a day when we will hold you, we will hold you. And you'll kiss our tears away, when we're home to stay. We can't wait for the day when we see you, we will see you. Baby let sweet Jesus hold you, until mom and dad can hold you. You'll just have heaven before we do..."
From the Family of Rylynn Grace Paynter - Thank you so very much for taking care of our beloved angel. Although it was one of the saddest days of our lives, your caring heart gave us the comfort that we needed.
