Our thoughts and prayers are sent to all the family of Harriet. I use to play cards with Harriet at the Park Road Plaza several years ago when my Mother was a resident there. We always had a fun time and enjoyed playing Hand & Foot and visiting with everyone and the yummy goodies we shared. Our deepest sympathies to you all.
