Wayne & Nancy and Gary,
Uncle Harlan was a wonderful Uncle to all of us Mc Nugent kids. He and Aunt Phyllis were always supportive and present at families events.
Also, he was a good friend and brother -in-law to our father, Ray.

May he Rest In Peace and may God Bless you and all your families.
Mike & Nancy Nugent
