She was always so sincere, sweet, and real. I loved our talks. Boy how she loved her family, especially her grandchildren! I know she will be greatly missed. God has been given a special Angel. Rest in Peace sweet Harriett.

    I have lovely memories of Harriet. We were neighbors and best buds in 8th grade, and remained close throughout HS. She hosted my Sweet Sixteen birthday party. We lost touch about thirty years ago. I always hoped I’d find her on facebook but never did. My heartfelt condolences to her family.

    Harriet you were a light and shining star to all who knew you. You never passed judgement on others and always knew the truth in others.. Thanks for the short time we really got to know each other.. You were one of a kind. Now you have your wings.

    Harriet was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. She would do anything for anybody and she was a true friend. I have known Harriet for over 20 years and we worked together in a couple of different places. My heart goes out to her husband and her daughter and her grandchildren. I know that she loved them all very much and I know this has left a huge hole in their family. But I also know that Harriet was a believer in God and she now rests in the arms of her Jesus. During her lifetime she had many struggles but now she is at peace and although she will be severely missed, we take comfort in knowing that she is now healed and whole in her Heavenly home. Therefore, we know that if we cling to our faith, someday we will see her again.
