Dear Jean and family, I'm so sorry for the loss of Harriet and I wish you all comfort in the memories and experiences you shared together. Harriet and Jean were very close to my mother, and embraced me into their lives as well during my visits to Arizona, and again when my mother became ill and passed a couple of years ago. Jean- together with Harriet, offered me so much emotional support and warmth during the difficult time while I was in Arizona- I'll be eternally grateful for this. Even amidst that grief, Harriet's energy and spirit for life was forever present, and we shared some joyful moments-and laughs! One moment sticks out for me- Harriet had suggested I meet up with the 'Pot-holers' group that my mother had belonged to- a nice way to meet the other women and honor my mother. I picked up Harriet and Jean, and as we drove to a local place in Green Valley to meet the other ladies, the exact location of the place became the subject of a little debate ; ) Of course, being from Mass.,and having no GPS, I had no idea where I was going.... so was relying on Harriet and Jean for directions...we all had a great laugh when we arrived-safe and sound. it was one of those moments that reminds me that even amidst grief, there is hope, humor and reminders of life. Peace- Meredith Anderton

Harriet invited me to her house on Keith Ave, in Berkeley, one New Years eve, where other friends also were gathered and we spent a warm and friendly celebration. She had a way of fostering friendship with others that I appreciated. She later became a friend I kept in contact with for over 30 years. Martha Crowe
