    Stephen, words cannot express my sorrow at hearing of Harriet’s passing. I pray that you are doing alright and that God is giving you what you need to get through this. I wish I had known she wasn’t well. I would have made an effort to have someone bring me to see her. Harriet is one of the nicest, most loving people I’ve met in my life. I’ve often wished I hadn’t left Wilmington. May God bless you and her family. Love, Peggy

    Harriet was the kindest soul. She was always there for me when I needed her and was so thankful I had the chance to have her in my life. She was my work mom and kept me in line. She will be greatly missed and forever loved. My prayers go out to Stephen and family at their time of grief and mourning. Just know she is a ray of sunshine shining on us all and she is reunited with her Thor.
