To Ms. Annie, Simone, Tony , Robbie and family. My heart was sadden to hear of her transition, however she's in a Better place. Harriet, my mom and myself had some Good memories and laugh. Numbers 6:24-26, states the Lord bless you and keep you; make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord turns HIs face toward you and give you His Peace.

I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of your mother. She was a beautiful, GOD filled, and loving person. It was an extreme pleasure knowing and working with her. We must grieve, but also celebrate her reception into the perfect kingdom, for there she rests peacefully.

My dear Friend, Harriet. My life will never be the same without you being available by phone, available to meet me for a breakfast, lunch, or a non-profit meeting or function. I miss you SO very much! I reflect on how we met, at Springfield College, and became study partners researching, studying, writing, praying and supporting each other in ways that led to our successful Master of Science degrees. Our commonalities, our differences, bonded us! I will cherish our work together, our laughs togetherand those times we defended each other during class debates (and would laugh afterwards). We were each others strength!
Now that you are in the glory of the Lord, I know that you are very peaceful, because here on earth you always did good and you strived to be happy every day of your life, and to make others happy. Until I see you again I will always remember you. I will always love you, Harriet, My God-Friend.
Dr. Ernestine (Tina) Barnes-Small

I offer my deepest prayers of peace to the family in this time of sorrow. I met Harriet while visiting my sister, Dr.Tina Barnes-Small a few years ago. We had brunch together. I truly enjoyed her company and conversation. I am so sorry for your loss.
