My thoughts and prayers are with you. I had the honor to work with Harriet at NRES and to reconnect with her later at LMES when her grandchildren started school. She loved each of you dearly and had a special place in her heart for her grandchildren! May sweet memories be a comfort as you grieve her loss.
