Harlan Northcott, 81-Years-Old, Fallen Angel

Tampa, Fl - As he had done so many time in the past 20 years, Harlan Northcott planned to take to the skies Thursday afternoon on a mission of compassion. Northcott had been a volunteer for the medical charity Angel Flight for the past 20 years. Angel Flight flies financially distressed patients that could not otherwise get medical attention because they don't have money to travel. Just after the plane had been cleared for takeoff, but before the plane took wing, Harlan Northcott, 81, Patricia Synder, 49, and Tyler McLellan, 15 entered into the great heavens when the plane hit a tower and burst into flames. Lord help us to serve others with great love just as Harlan did on his many Angel Flights.
