Julie and Stan,

I don't remember ever seeing your mother without a beautiful smile or friendly word. She and your father were such special and important family friends - I loved seeing them at our house when Mom and Daddy had parties. (They were ALWAYS on the list.) Please know the Rogers family is thinking of you both with much love.

I was so very blessed to be a part of her life, even for a short while. I grew to love her quickly.I will always miss her sweet smile, kind voice,,compassionate and caring heart, and her quick wit. She was one of the most genuine people I have ever known . I have been a caregiver for many years, and I have never seen two people care for a parent like Stan and Julie . Beautiful, amazing lady, and a wonderful family that she treasured with all of her heart.

Julie, Stan and Family,
Harriet called herself my T.O. Mom, for The Other Mom, as my own mother had passed away. She helped my during my first year of teaching, fed me at her kitchen table, and provided love and guidance. She was something special! Sending my sincere condolences.
