I met Harriette a few short years ago after she was diagnosed with lung cancer. As a member of the Branch Cares Ministry at The Branch Church, I was blessed to be her friend and walked with her through her struggles with her illness. She and I became very close and my dearest memory of her is when we would go for her chemo treatments, she would invite the nurses to church. She knew them all by name and when her treatments were no longer successful, she went to each person at the oncology center and hugged them for the last time.

My dearest Aunt Harriette, I am so glad that you are out of pain and walking the streets of gold with Our Lord, and my Grandmother Zora, my mother Mary Elizabeth, my sister Zora Regina, my brother Giovonni and my nephew Kelly Graham and so many more of your family and friends. As I mourn here on earth, I know you are rejoicing in heaven! Enjoy his eternal PEACE ✝‼️
