I will miss you Harriet. Thank you for taking me to Uniontown to visit your home town. That was such a fun weekend. I will always remember your Marvelous laughter. I will remember your kind spirit. I will always remember your true zest for life. It was an honor to know you and be a part of the whirlwind of your Hurricane. You were family to me. Thank you for the good times. Thank you for being the breath of fresh air you were every time I saw you. You are now the wind. May you fly high with the stars. You will be missed in my heart all the days of my life. You will always live as Elizabeth Taylor in my memories. Love, Jazz!
