    I am a fraternity brother of lyn’s and while Lynn graduated before i joined the Pikes,(1965) I got to know Lynn inlater Years and discover what a great man he was. I would look forward to the times when several brothers from the Detroit area wold travel to Concord to see Lynn and take him out to lunch. An enjoyable time for me and hopefully for Lynn who always had a good story or two to share with us. I regret I will not be able to attend the Services as I no longer can drive and my wife is concerned about the weather and possle icy roads Our Prayers go to Lynn’s Family and Lynnwill be sadly missed by many

    My sincere condolences to your family. As a first year teacher at Hanover-Horton, I remember Mr. Harden as one who always had a word of encouragement for me during that difficult year. I was blessed to teach across the hall from him for several years. He was always smiling and cheerful.
