Harriet lived a couple blocks south of me for many years. We saw each other often at the post office & visited on the walk back home. I have lived in Pella for 41/2 years now & didn't know she was ill. She was a very nice lady & I'm glad I got to know her.
What a sweet lady I have missed her smile !!! Sympathy to the family!
