Dear Editor:

We are the grandparents of Christopher Neil Harris, the Navy Corpsman whose death, funeral and burial you covered recently.  

We, as a family want to personally thank all the people we came in contact with from Orderville, Glendale, Mt. Carmel and Kanab for their amazing outpouring of love, kindness and support during our family’s time in your beautiful mountains.

Everyone, and we mean everyone, we came in contact with was so kind and helpful to all of us, moving mountains to make our stay comfortable and nurturing.  

We are so humbled by the sympathy we received, the gentle kindnesses each of you displayed to each of us and we want you all to know how you touched our hearts and souls.  

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you doesn’t seem to say enough, but know that you all surely demonstrated God’s love in all you did for us.  


Garn and

Dee Dee Whitesides
