  1. I came here to see what harlie used ro look like cause its been so long. Im now 13 and i remember when i went to school with her. At recess her friends would run up to me, ” Chase Harlie likes you” and i would just shrug it off like it meant nothing. But now that i read her story again im now in tears and wish i could see her one last time.

  2. My thoughts and prayers will always be with this family. Harlie’s service was absolutely beautiful, one worthy of such a vibrate and precious little girl. I hope your memories with her keep shining through, especially in those dark moments when it’s hard to imagine going on without her.
