We were lucky enough to be neighbors of Harriet and Don for 13 years we spent in Lake Placid, Florida. They were helpful and friendly neighbors and know she will be missed in that community. They were always seen around the park on their golf cart rides late afternoon and waved and visited as they rode. Everyone in the park will miss seeing her and Don together. Our hearts go out to their family and Don and know that we are with them in our thoughts and prayers.
