Mrs. Harrell was a true Southern Woman! Gracious,giving, thoughtful, always positive. She was especially nice to my mama during the planning a carrying out the Jr.Sr, when I was at Northeast. She sent me the nicest card when my mama died that I still have. Ill-always have a special place for her in my heart! Thoughts and prayers for the whole family!
