Condolence & Memory Journal

I worked with Harriett at Dade County Public Schools. We both loved sewing and have kept in touch during the holidays.
When I did not receive her yearly Chritmas card last year I searched for her online. So sorry to find she has passed. I looked forward to her yearly letters about her family. Please accept my condolences especially during the Christmas holiday. In sympathy, Lori Zyne

Dear Dr. Russell, I recently started looking through old emails to take a moment to send you a note--I wanted to ask how your mother had been doing. This morning, at Williamson County Campus, I caught a glimpse of you at the office, but when I parked my book bag and went back, you'd already left. Just sat down and saw this email from Emily. I am so very sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I heard something the other day that I thought summed it up (in the current wonderful rendition of Cinderella)--it was after Cinderella had lost her mother and some time had passed. She is walking with her father in a meadow and she says talking about her mother--"When pain became memories". I hope that many pleasant memories with your mother helps take the place of pain during this difficult time. Best wishes. I will be thinking of you. Prayers. Shawn Wilson
