Living for two decades in Grosse Pointe Park nearby what many years earlier had been the childhood home of Ms. Harris, I have for three times as long been utterly astonished by her stage (Belle of Amherst, Glass Menagerie), film (Member of the Wedding, East of Eden, Haunting, Reflections in a Golden Eye), and television (Victoria Regina) performances, recordings (Stuart Little, Dracula), and co-written book for young actors. Privileged to have met her---and some of her family members---a few times and often exchanged correspondence, I became as much impressed by the consistency of her gracious kindness as her forever stellar acting. Generous with her time and energy no matter what, she was so genuinely her own dear unassuming courteous self during our on again/off again but always delightful exchanges. In every way a class act, she shared the ineffable humanity of each of her wide-ranging characters as well as that within her very self. I am but one of many all that much better for it. Saddened by her death, I shall forever miss our personal connection. Despite that abiding sense of loss, I will continue to cherish the legacy she leaves behind for me and other devoted fans as well as future audiences yet coming to love her. As you have blessed us during your eighty-seven year lifetime and enjoyed career, so are you, Julia Ann Harris, also blessed.
