    Harley was truley compassionate. She always cared about others and everyone enjoyed being around her. She was that one true friend. She never judged anyone.. Always cared about what someone else was feeling. Never showed any sign of anger. She put her friends before her self. I knew her since I was 5 cause I cheered with her.. Harley was a fighter. God is one lucky man to have her up there with him. I love and miss her so much!!!:(

    I was Harley’s CA teacher and she was also in my TA at Truman. What a happy joyful young lady! We got to know each other pretty well. She was always smiling and compassionate toward others. She and I were the only people to bring canned food for the Thanksgiving Adopt-A-Family. I will always remember her as I turn the lamp on in my classroom. She donated to us. Peace and blessings to all her family and friends.
