I work for Henderson County Sheriff’s Dept in the communications division, and for many years I got to talk to Mrs. Hollingsworth on a daily basis. She was one of our participants in the Reassurance Program, and she was the nicest person you could ever talk with. We were all saddened when she went to the Laurels and our daily contact was broken. She always talked about her family, and her love of cooking, and sitting on the porch in the sunshine. I know she will be missed by all and I am sorry for your loss.
Our hearts go out to you in at this time. We will really miss Aunt Harriet. She was a jewel.

It is a comfort to know that she is in Heaven with Uncle Ernest and many other family members.

Mrs. Hollingsworth was a sweet lady. I never got to meet her in person. I talked to her on the phone every morning when I worked at the 911 center. She was always pleasant and wonderful. I am very sorry for the loss of this special lady.
Our thoughts go out to all the family, especially Ernie, my graduate assistant at ETSU, and to his sister. We wish you all the best and send you love and peace.
We will miss you Nanny but I know you are in a much better place now and with those who have went before.
Lo there do I see my father.
Lo there do I see my mother.
Lo there do I see my brothers and my sisters.
Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo they do call to me;
they bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla,
where the brave may live forever.
