I am so blessed to have known such a fine woman. Grace and talent, a gem for sure. My parents had the pleasure to meet with her after one of her many one woman shows. All she did was talk about me, as if I could hold a candle to that. It was memorable for them, and humbling for me. I will miss her dearly. Sincerely, Godspeed , Lisa Israel

Dear Peter,
I grew up knowing a bit about you from Miss Ida May Wilkinson who came from your home in New York to Franklin, Virginia, each summer to visit her mother, brother, sister-in-law, and niece and nephew who were my family's next-door neighbors.

While Miss Ida May didn't really "talk" about you and certainly not about your parents, she would sometimes share the title of a special book or a recipe that "my young friend Peter" liked. I was in college before my mother explained to me that Peter was you!

Along with the rest of the world, I was a great admirer of your mother, so much so that for my 50th birthday, my wife treated me to a trip to New York to see your mother and Mr. Charles Durning in GIN GAME. We sat on the front row--enthralled. I also saw your mother and Morgan Freeman in Baltimore in DRIVING MISS DAISY--only two chairs and two great actors creating magic on a stage.

My wife Deborah and I (now retired 40-years-apiece-veterans of high school English classrooms) are forever indebted to your mother, for she brought Miss Dickinson to life for us and for our students on film year after year.

Thank you for sharing your mother with the world. I send you my sincerest sympathy.

The theater won't be quite the same. Even when she wasn't performing, it was always a thrill to think she might appear somewhere soon. A bit of a hole in the heart.

To the family of Julie Harris.
I am very sorry for the loss of Julie.
She entertained us for many of years and it was a joy to watch her.
May the family find comfort in each other and
in our Creator who comfort us in difficult
times as these.
Take care.

Ms. Harris illuminated the human heart in ways that few actors can ever achieve. I will always treasure her performances--you were not just an observer for she took you along on the journeys of her characters and you immediately felt their joys and despair. Luminous is the word that most frequently comes to mind because her own generous heart illuminated the lives of those who she portrayed on stage. I hope her friends and family will take comfort in all that she gave to the world.

Eleanor darling, you have finally come home, to Parardise. GOD in his infinite wisdom, has created Ms. Harris and within her, has left us a legacy to behold forevermore....Godspeed, Ms. Harris, break a leg, and most importantly my heartfelt and most sincerest admiration and thanks. For Peter dear, Your beautiful mother has elevated us all. Judith MEKUSKY-Gerardo, Petersham, Ma, formerly New York. ..PS. In this precious late summer New England sky, I though I saw a shooting star, oh so very high.....Perfection

What a wonderful talent Miss Harris was. Saw her I'm many things but enjoyed her live in Louisville Ky with Brock Peters in Driving Miss Daisy. Superb! We have lost a great actress.
