Mrs. Storm used to live across
the street from my parents many years ago - Albany Drive, if anyone is
familiar with that street. Always a nice lady.
Harriet was my first editor at
the Daily Press when I rejoined the newspaper in 1970. She was a wonderful
editor, a wonderful person and a wonderful friend.
Over the years we lost contact but I never forget the good things she
taught me about writing, dealing with people and life in general.
My thoughts and prayers are
with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
What a tremendous loss to our
community. My prayers are with Harriet's family at this time.
The members & staff of the
Hampton Clean City Commission send our condolences to Lisa, Laura, Irwin,
and others of Harriet's family, both biological and "adopted". Harriet was
a beloved member of the Commission and a good friend, both professionally
and personally. She will be missed, but her presence will always be felt
among us. We don't know anyone else who has meant more to our community as
a whole, with her huge, kind heart and her questing spirit. She was one of
a kind, and we're glad she was among us.
I was very saddened to learn of
Ms. Storm's passing. She was a kind, generous lady who had a significant
impact on the job that was done at the CSB. My sincere condolences to her
family. Mark Cooper

Mrs. Storm was a champion for every cause she was a part of. We will miss
her physical presence but her memory will always be dear to our hearts.
Thank you for sharing your mother with us for so many years. My prayers
are with you.
I had the pleasure and
privilege of working with Harriet while on the Board of the Fine Arts
Center. She was without a doubt one of its most valuable supporters and
finest leaders. I had no idea of her illness and am saddened to hear of
your loss. My thoughts and prayers to the family.
I am so very sorry to here about your mother. She was a wonderful and
caring person, and will be dearly missed. My love and prayers go to you,
big Jesse, little Jesse and Maddie.
Lisa and family,
I was saddened to learn of your mother's death. She was a tireless fighter
for the rights and privileges of those less fortunate. AND she LOVED her
family dearly, as you well know. Although no longer with us physically,
her PRESENCE will ever remain in the mind and hearts of those she touched
- those legions will never forget her. SHALOM

lost a devoted and spirited alumna. May your memories help you through
this difficult time. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I speak for all of our Virginia Symphony family in expressing how deeply

positive energy. We feel so lucky to have had this extraordinary and
beautiful woman as part of our Virginia Symphony family.
We will deeply miss her and will cherish her lovely spirit always.

As a member of the class of
1961- "under" Harriet many years ago at NNHS - I always looked up to her
and tried to learn from her. Even then she showed the light that I now
know shined brightly from her throughout her life. I am so sorry for your
I am so sorry for you loss. Please know that you and your family are in my

We were so sad when we heard the dreadful news. We love your family and
though we didn't know your mom we can only imagine how incredible she was
to raise someone as sweet, kind and caring as you. Know that you are in
our thoughts and prayers. If you need us for anything don't hesitate to
Lisa, Laura and Family,
Your mother was a wonderful person. She loved you a great deal and talked
about the pride you had for each of you. I was so blessed to have the
opportunity to work with her on various committees, advocating for Mental
Health services. She was a jewel. May you find comfort in knowing that the
Lord is the ultimate comforter and he will keep you in his care and help
you through this difficult time.
Laura, I am so sorry for the
loss of your Mom. I will miss her so much and can honestly say that she
has made the world a much better place.

Laura and Lisa, you were so
blessed to have parents that loved and cherished you so much! Some of my
fondest childhood memories were made possible by you all opening your home
up so generously for sleepovers, birthday parties, bike rides or even just
Laura and I riding bikes around your neighborhood. My life has been made
better by being able to know and to love you all! Harriett left an
indelible impression not only on the community but to anyone who had the
great pleasure of knowing her. To know her was to love her! You are all in
Dear Lisa and Laura,
I was so sorry to hear that your Mom passed away. I think often of you,
Lisa, and how often you were in our home. I always liked the friendship,
you and Susan shared. Memories of your Mom and Dad will always be
precious!!! I pray for God to comfort you and your sister..
I'm sorry for your loss. When I
heard Harriett had passed away, it was uneasy talking about her death. but
as I studied Second Corinthians 5:1, I see another way to look at her
transition: she has simply moved home. She has left the tent, the
temporary dwelling place that she used when she was here on earth, and she
has gone to live in her permanent home that will last forever. She no
longer walks this earth. She has left us all. However, because of her
faith, she lives on in a new existence where she is strong, healthy, and
free of pain. Her passing is not the end but a gateway into a new and
Am sorry for the loss of Harriet ~ May her memory always be eternal .
We are so
sorry to hear about your mom. She will be sadly missed by a lot of people.
Doug and Leslie Perry
Laura and family,
I was so shocked this afternoon when I read about your mom's passing in
today's Daily Press online. I did not know she had passed away. I am so
very, very sorry for your loss and I am sorry we missed the visitation and
funeral. She was, indeed, a lovely lady. I enjoyed talking to her at the
many ballgames over the years. She was a dedicated fan of all of Jesse's
games and those of her other grandchildren. I knew she was involved in a
lot of things, but did not know how much until I read her story. She was
truly an inspiration to others and has helped so many people during her
lifetime. My heart goes out to you now. I will be praying for you and your
family as you continue to mourn her passing. I know it hurts and will
continue to do so. Just know that we are lifting you up in prayers at this
time and will pray that God will give you strength to carry on. We love

Laura, I've been thinking about you today. The service for Harriet was
beautiful and so are you and your families. Memories of Harriet came
flooding back. One of the more powerful ones was how she could sit down and
type out a final copy of a paper in school without the multitude of drafts I
always needed for my papers (in the old typewriter days). Another powerful
memory was when your mother suggested to me that we start a petition that
students be admitted to William and Mary regardless of race or creed. This
was in 1962, before the Civil Rights movement really got going, but we got
going on our petition. We also had a lot of fun. I'll be thinking of you in
the coming days. Love, Maynard
Dear Lisa ands Laura,
I was sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. She was a true
inspiration to me and to all that she came in contact. May time heal your
heart. I pray peace and comfort for you and your whole family. You have my
Dear Lisa and Laura and family:
Please accept my deepest sympathy upon the passing of your dear mother,
Harriet. She was such an intensely passionate, smart and giving person. I
had the privilege of serving with her on several boards over the years;
and her family was always the subject about which she was most passionate
and engaged. It seemed she did everything, always to make the world a
better place for you; and that is exactly what she has done. I will be
forever grateful for her friendship and the example of her commitment and
never failing efforts on behalf of her family and community. May God's
peace and grace be with you, as with dear Harriet, always. Sincerely,
Dear Family and Friends,
I extend my sincere sympathy to all of you. Harriet was a "symphony
of support" for many worthwhile community causes. My thoughts and
prayers are with you. Sincerely,

Although we never knew your mother, we are reading and hearing more and
more about this extraordinary woman. Clearly, she was a true 'woman of
valor.' Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your sister at this
