    I had a chat with Ryan today, and he notified me of Harriet’s passing.I just wanted to extend my condolences to the family. Becca and I were classmates and cheerleaders together, and she and Tom lived on the same farmstead that I grew up on. To this day, Ryan farms the small piece of land passed down to me by my father, so there is a long connection with the family. I’m thinking of youall of you, and I will be praying for you during this time of transition. God bless you all,
