Mrs. Harris was always such a kind and sweet lady. Both Janice and I have missed seeing her when we came to do housekeeping. She was always a bright spot in our day . Always telling us the latest news about the grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved them so. We are so very sorry for the loss to the family.
