If you're reading this it means I didn't make it. Big time bummer! But don't think I didn't go down without a fight! Cancer is a wicked thing. Since I'm writing this in advance, I assume I am survived by John R. Morgan, my hero for more than 30 years, and our amazing children, James A. Morgan, Alden B. Morgan & Ashton R. Morgan. All of whom I love more than I can say.

I am also survived by my parents, my mother, Barbara C. Worsham-Gartung, who is selfless and compassionate and dedicated her life making sure her kids were taken care of. A wonderful role model. My pop, Charles H. Gartung, who chose to raise me. He was a great influence of me (Some might say a bad influence LOL). I learned so much from him. And my father, Walter W. Harris, Jr.

With fond memories of getting up in the dark & going deep sea fishing at 3 or 4 years old as well as motorcycle riding.

I also leave behind my siblings and their beautiful families. Sisters, Penny L. Smith, Barbara Lynn Nelson and Kenya L. Vargas and my brothers, Billy J. Harris and Anthony M. Gartung and the bonus sibs, Martha , Desiree and Charlie.

I was preceded in death by all grandparents Bill and Patricia Worsham, Viola and Walter Harris, Sr. My great-grandparents as well as William and Mary Gartung, James (Toss), and Catherine Worsham. C.W. & Eula Blanks, My aunt Vivian Welcome, My step mother & dear friend, Donna Dryden & stepsister, Kathy Potts & so many other loving family and friends. There's comfort in knowing they are waiting for me to arrive (slide into home plate) welcoming and celebrating.

We were always so close growing up. Favorite Cousins to each other. Now you're gone, but I still look for you. With many loved ones gone here recently, I feel alone now. But I know in my heart, we shall meet again. I love & miss you.
