Prayers and blessings to your family from mine. Harriet was a great friend and student of art and always so supportive of the kids when she saw what they had done at the Art Spot. We enjoyed her visits to the gallery and the time I was able to spend with her over pencils and pictures was a blessing. She will be missed very much.
