Life is wonderful and part of life is death which comes with the sadness of knowing we will never see her and those we love again. Most of all life comes with joy from those we love. Auntie brought so much joy to me and everyone she would meet. I will always see her beautiful smile and hear her loving voice in my mind and heart. My life was made very special because My Aunt Harriet made me feel special, she made everyone feel special. Now she has her Angel wings watching over us and resting in peace! I love you AuntieOXOXO

I'm so sorry for your family's loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I too have suffered the loss of both a mother and grandmother, and the pain can seem overwhelming. However I found comfort in the Bible's promise for the future. Acts 24:15 speaks of a resurrection, a time when God will reunite us with our loved ones again! I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.

Dr.John, We are so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Just read about her in tonight's Vidette Times--too late, unfortunately to make the wake, and we are going up to Wisconsin to see our daughter Angie and grandkids tomorrow so will miss the funeral as well. Too bad. I would have loved to see you again. Lost track of you when you were down south. Your mom sounds like a lovely lady, and I am sure she had a huge impact on who you are today. May you remember her well and may she leave loving memories with you and your children. Jim and Mary Ann Jones

I was saddened to hear the news of her passing. She was so much more then a foster mom to me She was my mom. I feel blessed to have had her in my life. Rest in peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Grandma you will always hold a very special place in my heart. You were like a mother to me growing up. I spent every day with you at your house growing up and I will always remember those being some of the happiest times of my life. Its been 9 years since grandpa died and your prayers have finally been answered to be with him again. I will miss you both. Give grandpa a big hug and kiss for me and I will see you both again soon xoxo

My heart is heavy, but am so happy to have had you in my life, Aunt Harriet. You were my Godmother and a loving, caring Aunt that will always remain forever be in my heart. Fun memories come to mindbaskets of ironing that awaited me when I came to stay and visitLOL!! I smile each time I recall your love you shared with so many. Your hugs and kisses were a warm and inviting treasure to anyone who came in contact with you. I will miss you, but know that now you are where you want to be. Uncle Mitch, your loving husband, greeted you with open arms and you are probably dancing the polka with him. Please give my Mom a big hug and kiss from me. Love you!

I was truly saddened to hear about Aunt Harriet's passing yesterday. I'll remember her with a smile on her face and always being one of the first aunts to hug and kiss. She always welcomed us nieces with open arms. May she now rest in peace back with Uncle Mitch as heaven has a new angel.
