I knew Vada for a short time but in that short time I knew her, I felt very very blessed. She warmed my heart so much. I wish her family strength to make it through these tough times. May peace be with all of you.

We would like to send our sincerest condolences to the Hargus family. In Life, all individuals will eventually pass, but it is never easy for the family members when this occurs. The pain is felt more so when it is ones Mother or Grand-mother. May the pain ease with time and the memories grow fonder.
