Like Faith, I was also fortunate enough to be welcomed to the family by Harriet. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to meet Russ, but, Harriet welcomed me on that first Thanksgiving and made me feel like part of that family thereafter. She was a terrific lady and I will miss her.

It was a sincere pleasure to have had Harriet as part of my life for the last 30 years. So many memories of all our family trips to the cabin for long weekends. One special trip still makes me laugh, it was our trip to Germany for her grandsons wedding. Brian and I had checked into our hotel room and were getting lunch there, when who do we see walking up the sidewalk.....Harriet and her daughter-in-law Karen...they were "lost"... And talk about dogs, some family gatherings there were more dogs than people. In closing, Harriet and Russ embraced me from day one and are two of the most loving people I have had the opportunity to be able to call family. So raise a glass to: Harriet, Russ, Brian and Sassy, I love you and miss you all and look forward to the day we are reunited again. As the saying goes "life goes on"but the memories remain in your hearts forever. Love Faith and Coco
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Harriet was a special lady. I am glad I was able to know her. I was so impressed with the hard work she did with Annie to become a certified Therapy Team at the age she did it. My sincere sympathy to Chris and Dave and to all of the family.

Harriet was the best 'mom' that I could have chosen. The two most important things she taught, and showed, me was unconditional love, and to live life 'like a child.' She was always thrilled to have her family around. She also loved to hear about our travels so she could enjoy them through us. I will miss you you so much. Love you always.
