Bro. Harden was a wonderful man to our family. He and Troy brought landscaping rocks and wood to our house and would never once take any $. He was kind and always testified of God's grace and love. We will miss him but what a sweet homecoming he must have had. "No more pain, no more sorrow. All is peace forevermore". Prayers for the family.
