Trooper Harmon,
As I read the story of how you were shot, you lived then died, my heart breaks for your family. Even though many years have gone by, I know there isn't a day that goes by that they don't think about you. You must have gone through hell at times while you were still living. I pray that you did have some peaceful times with your family. You were a hero in every sense...thanks Trooper!
