“Harriet was someone who challenged me in the most profound way - to be willing to accept her open and enthusiastic acceptance of me. She knew exactly what I needed and gave it to me - a wonderful woman.
“My condolences to Harriet's family. I was fortunate to have known Harriet as she served on my dissertation committee at Virginia Tech. Like many other students, I was fortunate to have benefitted from her insightfulness, her sensitivity, and her support. I am truly saddened.
“I met Harriet in 1980. She had the unique and wonderful gift of being a charismatic leader. As a friend, she was high energy, loyal and fun. As a colleague, she was comprehensive and smart. A great analytic thinker. I will miss her grace and the laughter. Peace and love.
“I had the great fortune to work with Harriet through JMU and later she served on my dissertation committee at VA Tech circa 1990. To say that she made a positive impact on my life is an understatement - she will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
“I had the pleasure of working with Harriet during the development of the Virginia Tech/JMU doctoral program many years ago. She has always been a dedicated professional and one who was wonderful with which to work. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
“I met her in graduate school and she influenced my life in many ways. I am truly saddened by her death.
“Harriet will be missed by many, both personally and professionally. She was an outstanding contributor to the field of psychology through her work and the way she lived her life.
“Harriet touched the lives of many. Her wit, intellect, insight and kindness made her one in a million. It is hard to imagine JMU without her radiant smile and guidance. May peace be with her and all who loved her now.
“Thank you for the many years of dedicated service you gave to JMU, the students, the field of school psychology,and your many friends.
