    Beth, Edwin, Sue, and Family- I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. My parents and I enjoyed the 20 years of camping at Harmony Ridge. My parents also enjoyed the few trips they were able to go away with your parents to Maine on vacation.
    Your mom gave me my first job taking care of all the birds you had for visitors to enjoy when they came to the campground. Your father taught me how to use the controls on the tractor when he was working on a campsite. Both will be missed a lot! Harmony Ridge was a big part of our lives!! Take Care!!
