Stacey,Russell,Gary,Dale and Kent, I would give anything to be able to be there to say goodby. She was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. I remember watching to see when the front door would open to your house so I could play with yall. The kool-ade on a hot day, calling us out of the woods, bandaging our scrapes. For my first eleven years she was always there for us. Thanks for sharing your wonderful mama with the Moreland Avenue Gang. Memories we will never forget. I love each of you and will be thinking of yall.
Love, Harriett

Mama, Meme, Mawmaw, Sister, Friend. Whatever she was to you, she was special! She was humble,
kind, patient, nurturing, loving and the list goes on. Ill cherish the many memories I have of my Meme. Our laughs, our tears, our afternoon naps and most of all her potato salad! You will forever be my Meme! And like Megan said, thank you for teaching and showing us what unconditional love is! Rest peacefully my sweet Meme! Ill see again soon! I love you!

But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body.
