I first met Mrs. Harper when I was about 19 years old and became good friends with her daughter Linda. Throughout the years, when I would see Mrs. Harper, I always noticed her sweet smile and sweet disposition, and soft laugh. She was soft-spoken too, and was a very pleasant person to be around. She loved her family very much!
