I want to express my sadness when I read about Harvy's passing.
I graduated with her in 1950 at Austin High school in Houston. We were also fellow students at the University of Houston. I lost track of her until we began to have the class reunions and monthly luncheons. She was always glad to greet me with a big smile.
She helped out on several of the reunions which made the events something to remember. I am sad to say that most of of the original class of 300 students are being lost each year .I am sad I missed her funeral but I do not drive long distances any more
God bless all members of her family.

I met Harvy about 1986 when I was a parent volunteer in the Horn Elementary School library. She was always very gracious and expressed to me her appreciation for the help in “verifying” the card catalog. In 1989 I joined the faculty at Horn, and over the next 10 years, Harvy and I shared many lunches together with the “lunch bunch” that included Ila, Melissa, and Jo. Lunchtime was when we could share our joys, our sorrows, our frustrations, and our love for each other. I was fortunate that after I left Horn I was able to continue my friendship with Harvy, as she lived just a few blocks from my house. How wonderful it is to have had a great friend for more than 30 years! Harvy was very smart and could get right to the point in any discussion. Recently I told her that I thought of her as my “big sister,” since as an only child I have no siblings. I could not have had a better confidant, friend, colleague, and big sister. I will miss you, Harvy.

Harvey was a special lady. I meet her at Horn Elementary. I'm so glad we got to share a few years working together. May she rest in peace.
