Harriet was a lovely, kind person. She was so thoughtful and kind to our family when Maner's parents passed away years ago. She was dear to Frances and Olin. We were in Savannah until last night and we were shocked and saddened upon our return to hear of her death. Our sincere and deepest sympathies to you and your fine family in this time of loss and sorrow. Maner and Marjorie

Dear Sibley, I was saddened to learn about the passing of your beloved wife Harriet. My deepest condolences go to you and your family. I was in Greensboro in Superior Court last Wednesday, the day of the funeral service, and had hoped to stop by to pay my respects in the afternoon. Unfortunately, the trial that I was working went very late, until past 5:30 pm, thus making it impossible for me to come by. I would have liked very much to see you again. Nonetheless, my prayers are with you and your family. May Ms. Harriet's soul rest in peace in our Lord Jesus' kingdom. With deepest sympathy, Jorge Ascunce
