I was so sorry to hear about <span class="ajaxSearch_highlight ajaxSearch_highlight1">Harriet</span>. Both she and Paul were wonderful people and I have fond memories of them growing up.

Sorry this is so late but I just heard about it.

Peggy and I are very sad to hear of your mother's passing. Harriet clearly made the world a better place. May God console you among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Being employed in the Volunteer Dept at CMC, I had the rare opportunity of being in your mother's company for many years. She was a volunteer who was valued for her care and concern towards others. She always had a beautiful smile for everyone, and gave you the feeling that you were "the only person in the world" and that she had all day to spend with you. I always admired her dedication to your father and your family. She was such a proud mother. She possessed the rare qualities of patience, honesty,a wonderful sense of humor, dedication and commitment. I am a better person because I had someone like your mother in my life, as you wanted to learn from her life experiences and become more like her. She was devoted to your father, who was also a wonderful person....
Thank you for "sharing" your mother....
Much love, many prayers,
Ann Robinson
