I must add to this obituary, although there are not enough words to describe the inner beauty and grace of my beloved wife Harriet. She completely filled a void in my live that I thought could never be filled, but she did it with a gentle and tender love that is impossible to describe. I know she is singing God's praise with the angels and enjoys the peace and joys of paradise, which she so richly deserves..
