Mrs Harris was part of my childhood memories. She and Mr Harris taught us in Training Union. I appreciate their dedication to us, Grove Station Church but most importantly God. My sympathy to the family.

My Aunt Teen was the consummate Southern Lady. With equal parts of grace, humility, humor, and faith in Our God. I will forever remember her laugh and the fact she was always seemed happy. What a wonderful example of what a Christian should be for her family and friends.

God bless all of you. I have fond memories of Mr. and Mrs. Harris. They, the Lollis's and my parents, J.T. and Gladys Vinson enjoyed getting together and doing things together. They were always laughing, playing jokes and having fun. Mrs. Harris was always so sweet. Wonderful memories of wonderful people, they made an impact on my life as a child. Fond memories. Godspeed.
