Guest Book

Kathy and I were so sorry to hear that your mom had passed. Having grown up with you and your family was a treasure. So many times we would end up at your home which is a testament to the kindness your mom was to so many of us boys who were a little rough around the edges. So many memories, not one of which is in any way negative. She lived a wonderful and full life. It has been one of my greatest honors having Steve as a friend growing up, and now our families are knitted together as well....

Steve, Sharon, and Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. At her age, she saw many changes in the world -- even seeing a man walk on the moon. I can only image her excitement when this happened.Your mom was better than any history book--she actually lived it. I wish I would have had the chance to have met this wonderful lady. I bet Steve got his gardening skill from his mom. This is a very difficult time for your family to go through. Just know that I am thinking of all...

Steve,Sharon and family,
We are sorry for your loss. You were a great son Steve and still wonderful with your uncle.
You and Sharon are some of the nicest people we know so we give your mom and dad credit. ( for you anyway). Although we only met her on one or two occasions she seemed like a beautiful, elegant lady. We are sorry for your loss Jeri and Todd

Our sympathies to each of you, Steve, Sharon and all of Harriet's family. May God wrap his comforting arms around you today and the days ahead.

To Dennis,Steven,Denise and all of your families.
We were saddened to here of your Mom's death. Brad & Barb have kept us informed of of her worsening condition so we were prepared for the news. As you know, the 4 of us are in Alabama for the winter months so we will not be with you for the funeral. Our thoughts & prayers will be with you. You have our deepest sympathy.

What a wonderful lady, Harriet! As a young mother living next door to her, there were many times I had to rely on her help to solve emergencies that occur when raising children. Besides that, her encouraging words, her sense of humor, the sharing of her delicious baked goods...yes, she added a rich dimension to my life for which I'll always be grateful. My sincere sympathies to the family in the loss of Mother, Grandma, Great-Mother, Sister, and Friend.


Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this very difficult time. I've many fond memories of Mrs. Johnson while Steve and I were kids growing up - many memories of her in the kitchen wearing her apron and offering us a freshly baked piece of lemon meringue pie or warm anise cookies and asking us about our days events. She'll have a warm place in my heart forever.

What a wonderfull person. She will be missed.

Hi Steve, Sharon and Family,

My thoughts are with you as you celebrate the life of such a wonderful woman. I know she will be dearly missed.
