"I woke up last night, and thought of a phone conversation I had with Sally prior to her surgery.  I was remembering her last night, and this morning I found out it was her birthday. How strange is that?  Sally was a pillar of strength.  Events I would have shared with Sally are not the same without her"

"Kathyrn, your message (and tribute) in Stories was so beautiful I took the liberty to share more of it here so all may see.  The preceeding three tributes are yours. They give clear insight to who she was in her many facets.  She was one of the pillar stones at UUCSS and it was a joy to have her memorial there.  I know she will live on in the memorial fund in her name- in beauty and care."

"I’ll feel her joy & love as the breeze washes my face & the sun's energy strengthens & warms my soul. I am ever grateful to her for all she taught me, the gifts she gave me during our inreach meetings at church, in sharing her life stories & her adventures of her too brief stay on this planet. Peace, Serenity, Joy are some of the lessons I've learned from Sally (Kathryn in "Stories" part)"

I shall remember & honor Sally's spirit today (Kathryn Leete in "Stories")"

"From Chris Shantz (LRY frined & more)  "Wow... All of you are the same in the photo at Sally's memorial service, and yet not. This triggered many memories, and many revolved around Sally... If not for her willingness to take on a house full of rowdy teens, who knows what would have happened. Rest in Peace, Sally Harris....""

"Sally was a person who made lemonade when dealt lemons. She was one of my role models, an advisor, a wise woman, a fun companion. I admired her intellect, her parenting skills, and beautiful artistic creations. I will miss her--especially when traveling. We had planned to go to Bali ......."

"Sally touched my life in many ways.Together we took a trip with our grand children, served on the Ministerial Search Committee at UUCSS, enjoyed our book club, traveled to India.(her last trip)  Sally was never rattled, was so efficient and always got right to the point. She was such a talented artist. I love her paintings. Her absence has left a void in my life. I will miss her."

"Most of my memories of Sally are her as a busy mother, caring for 2 kids, and then 2 more girls came along. i was always in awe of her artwork, even then. Two things stand out from that time: Campfire Girl meetings, and interesting looking things to eat in a forbidden corner of the Harris refrigerator!! Much later, i remember her delight in becoming a grandmother. Love to all family<3"

""What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived fully! And your life gave us meaning and memories too beautiful to forget""
