    I didn’t know Harriet for a long time, but the short time I have known her, she has been nothing but pure sweet, and humble. Every conversation we have had will be cherished. Just to see her smiling face every morning coming through the door was a blessing. She will surely be missed. Rest in peace dear heart.
