Jim and Family,
We’re sorry to hear about your Mother and are keeping you and your family in our prayers.
Harriett was a very grand person. She witnessed a lot of history through her many years. I enjoyed talking with her as I visited my Mother at Hillside. Sorry for your loss, but her family was fortunate to have her presence in their lives for so many years. Keep her memories alive for the next generation so they will have an essence of what life was like for her. Our sympathies with family and friends.
