Harriet, 1916 - 2012

Harriet, 1916 - 2012
Earlier this week my dear friend Harriet passed away. She was 96 years old.
Harriet was a feisty, passionate supporter of peace and social justice, a vegetarian and an atheist. She was also a precise, petite woman who always looked beautifully turned out - with her hair fashionably coiffed and her tiny frame elegantly turned out in neat, attractive clothes and (in the cold months) red suede boots.
I had the great good fortune to meet Harriet years ago at the weekly peace vigil in Bristol - a vigil that has been meeting since before the invasion of Iraq - and I spent many lively hours with her discussing war, peace, religion, and politics.
In inclement weather, when others would wimp out (or want to) Harriet's indignation at the state of the world and her belief in our duty to witness for peace and justice (against all odds) would keep us there and encourage us to keep coming back.
At her memorial gathering today, the driveway was lined with some of the signs she had held at the vigil over the years. She would have approved. (Next photo.)
We all feel so grateful to have known her. Goodbye, Harriet. You will be missed but always remembered with love and admiration.
