I remember sitting next to Harriett at Severance Hall at our graduation.

Her nephew, whose name I believe was Matt, was on the same Cleveland Heights Community Services youth soccer team, which I coached, with our son Matt. She found the time to watch one of the matches.

May she rest in peace.

Harriett and I were close friends for over 60 years!  The laughing never stopped when we visited one another.

We  spent more time visiting when our children were grown. When she was on vacation in Florida, we always

got together somewhere,either where she was staying or at my house  here in Florida.  I will miss her and the

remembered stories from our youth--so many funny times and situations!  God bless her.  Pat Faragher Sahm
