"Mom, there really are no bad kids at Harmon."
So short a time he walked our halls and though not tall. seeing all.
His friendly manner and ready smile makes us glad to have known him for awhile.
But now we know what his words show, that's one thing that always will glow.
The way he joked, the way he teased, made all of us feel at ease.
Now we've lost our loving friend, we just couldn't see the very end.
His friendship meant a lot to us, knowing it would never be the way it was.
And to the life he'll have beyond this earth.
He'll bring his special smile and mirth.
