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.
Meet Patti and Megan
Patti Thomas Hushon joined Harkins in early 1994 and with her experience in compassionate care at our funeral home, she launched an infant program years ago. Within the last 3 years, Upper Chesapeake Medical Center offered for our funeral home to join their infant loss program. Patti was eager to join and offer our complimentary services. She has assisted numerous times and began going into the mother's room to receive the infant into her arms thus avoiding the baby being transferred to any other place in the hospital.
In April of 2019, the Gone Too Soon program began helping families/parents with their losses at GBMC.
Megan Decker began working with Patti in the infant loss program over a 1 1/2 years ago (joining Harkins in the Spring of 2017) and has been a very welcome addition to this service. As a licensed funeral director, her visions and compassion are valued assets when assisting the grieving families. Her Corgie, Otis has become the funeral home dog and offers his unspoken caring spirit.
