My sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Ms. Harper. In times like these, it can be hard to find relief from our grieving. Psalms 34:18 reassures us that God cares for us, especially when we are broken hearted. Knowing He cares for all of us can help some find peace of mind when enduring tough trials. I hope you all soon find comfort, and again, I am so sorry for your loss.

I work with Tyler Harper at EASi. It is clear to me that he has a strong family behind him that has provided him with a great upbringing and strong sense of ethics and kindness. It is also clear that he cared very much for his grandmother. Although I never met Glenda, I can tell she has had a positive influence on Tyler's life and that she will be sorely missed. I would like to express my sincere condolences to Tyler and his family during this difficult time.
Jim and Regina Rosier - Mar 13, 2019
We remember her as a special lady who visited us while Mark was working his magic on our house. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Love, Jim & Regina
