    Words cannot express how saddened we are over the loss of Harriet. We are so happy that we did see her the day before Thanksgiving, right before we left for Florida. She was feeling good and planning her Thanksgiving dinner for her family whom she loved so much. She truly loved each and everyone of her children and grandchildren and was always talking about them. She was sure a good friend to a lot of us and will be missed. Please accept our deepest sympathy and may she RIP. Much love to all of you.

    I was so sorry to hear of your loss and your family will be in my prayers as you go through this difficult time. I have enjoyed Harriett very much, ever since I started working with her at the Perigo Airport Center Facility in Holland back in May 2000. It’s been a pleasure spending time with her even as we all moved on with the closing of the facility. She was always such a joyful and loving person to spend time with.

    I will miss her very much.
