    To the Harting Family,
    I lived in Building 3 at Sterling Hill and your parents were neighbors. I enjoyed many hallway chats with them and they were wonderful and active members of the community. They will be remembered for all they did for Sterling Hill and as two really great neighbors. My condolences to all of you.
