Olive Marie Hartt-Harrison
My Aunt Marie was one of my best pals when I was a kid. She could laugh when I scared her with spiders and frogs! When I
graduated from the University of Utah in 1989 with my masters in nurse-midwifery, she sent me a special letter which was a real
sign of our closeness years before. The first letter I ever wrote to anyone at age 5 was to my Aunt Marie. The letter spoke of the birth
process I witnessed in nature growing up in Estes Park. When I graduated from the University years later, she sent me back that
letter saying simply "I always knew you would do something like this some day so I kept this letter in my safe deposit box for you."
