Harriet, I am so saddened to hear of your mom's death. What a wonderful lady she was! I always enjoyed the many special times I spent in your home with your mom and dad and can still recall talks around the table, not to mention the countless miles we spent in the car going back and forth to Denton. You were always at the heart of everything that was important to her. I will always be grateful for the friendship we shared and for the many kindesses she showed to me personally. Harry and I pray that you will be sustained by your faith in this time of grief. With much love, Sandy Nabors Barnes, March 31, 2004 Harriet, Mom told me about your Mother tonight and I am so sorry.
