  1. My thought and prayers are with all of you at this time. Uncle Gene was very unique and I enjoyed visiting with him – because he always brought a smile to your face.


    During this time of great sorrow, may it comfort you to know that others are deeply touched by your loss. I too know the pain of losing someone dear. Even though our hearts are broken, rest assure that our Grand Creator cares about you personally (1Peter5:7) and can help you through this difficult time.
    Revelation 21:4 speaks of a time soon when God will do away with death forever. There will be no more sorrow, heartache, or pain. May your happy memories and sure scriptural hope comfort your hearts during this painful time.

  3. To the Harrington family,

    Our deepest condolences to you all. He was a pleasure to see and treat.

    Benjamin Marble, DPM and staff
