|Let the memory of Harriett be with us forever! We Love You Harriett/Mom/Nana|
"Mom, it has been one year ago today since you passed
I miss you every day
You are always here with me, I can feel your presence.
I love you MOM"
"Hattie, On your 91st I can't help but remember the good times that you and Jean and I had on the golf course. I am sure that you are still having wonderful times.
"I wish we had met long ago, the time we did have was way to short. However, you touched my heart that will last forever. I remember when I walked in the door and you'd greet me with a smile and a wave. I give everyone a nickname, yours was Cupcake, it fit you well because you were so soft and sweet. When I took your hand in mine (warm or cold), I would say your hands were cold, you would smile and look at me as if you were waiting for me to ask what does that mean cupcake? You would always say "it means a warm heart" and we would both smile with each other.
I was there on your last day on earth, sitting beside you trying to get as much of the book of Psalms read to you, I knew that was one of your favorite books of the Bible. I was sad when you passed but knew your faith in God had taken you to the heavens above with His open arms and made your body whole. I will miss you from day to days, sometimes sad but always with a smile from the memories we made. I love you my friend <3"
"We met when I was 10 years old on Union Hill when I met Liz. Hatti was my second Mom. She was always very kind, classy, soulfull, loving, welcoming, generous and sweet. She let me live with them when I was a troubled teen, and never judged and was always helpful and guiding. She was a strong role model single Mom raising Liz and Leslie on her own. She loved all her family more than anything. She had an amazing generous loving spirit. We have all been blessed by an angel and she will be very missed. Rest in Peace MomHatti.
"Harriett, my father's cousin. You were always so sweet to us and welcoming and kind. It was a pleasure and a privilege to have known you!
Love, Brad and Sonya"
"I met Harriet when we moved into the neighborhood in 2007. She and Drake were warm and welcoming neighbors to my husband and me. I will remember her as a sweet and loving person."
"I am a hospice volunteer who visited regularly with Harriett the past several months. What a privilege to feel her rich presence even for this brief and more narrow period of her life."
"Liz, I am Hattie's first cousin. We lived nest door during our younger years. We were very close but we weren't in contact for the last few years. She was a fine strong person and I know that she loved you dearly. My prayers are with you. Morgan Miller"
"Merry Christmas mom, it has been a tough two days making it through putting a smile on and trying to hold it together for our family when inside my heart hurts for how much I miss my mom. Life will never be the same. I miss your presence mom."
"Beloved companion, friend and wife; short passage of time and will be together again.
A small tribute:
Autumn Season of Life
We are like leaves upon the tree
That through the window I can see
A few there refused to fall
Did not answer autumns call
They flit and fluttered in the breeze
That slowly moved through Maple trees
They most enjoyed the extended time
They spend in this exotic life
And as they change from Green to Gold
There is a message they unfold
I read it in the simple way
They say good-night at close of day
They all enjoyed their short stay
Perhaps it is because they know
That after the winter and the snow
New life will follow with a mate
This in time will prove life can be great
They seem happy as they cling
As if waiting there for spring
But if they, like we, have passed four score
They know that spring will come no more (in this life)
And that their days, have been our years
Some filled with joy, some with tears
And that the one, which has just passed
Was best of all, though it be last,
Harriett you did a good job, we are proud of you.
(Exanastasis next on time line see you then)"
"I met Harriett when my children were in pre-school. she is a strong Christian woman and very loving Mom and Grandma. Through play dates and preschool events and soon to be family gatherings as her daughter Elizabeth and I became best friends and our daughters Kim and Danielle became best friends too. Over the years my family joined many happy occasions with Harriett and her family, We will miss your smile and fun sense of humor. Love you Harriet, till we meet again. Love you Liz. Prayers to your family."
"Mom, thank you for being such a wonderful role model for me.
I love you with all of my heart and I miss you already. Life will not be the same, I have an emptiness in my heart. Rest in eternal peace mom, until we meet again some day."
