Maryanna Harvey

“we never say goodbye” were my mother’s last words today as she passed on with a smile on her surprise at all to the Harvey clan for whom she is our guiding light.. my mom is my single greatest influence in life, shown here on her most recent 93rd birthday.. Maryanna Harvey never passed judgement on anyone and is a positive influence on all around her.. sadness will be replaced quickly by celebration…she would insist on it.. i love you Mom

  • I Think Continually Of Those Who Were Truly Great

    I think continually of those who were truly great.
    Who, from the womb, remembered the soul’s history
    Through corridors of light where the hours are suns
    Endless and singing. Whose lovely ambition
    Was that their lips, still touched with fire,
    Should tell of the Spirit clothed from head to foot in song.
    And who hoarded from the Spring branches
    The desires falling across their bodies like blossoms.

    What is precious is never to forget
    The essential delight of the blood drawn from ageless springs
    Breaking through rocks in worlds before our earth.
    Never to deny its pleasure in the morning simple light
    Nor its grave evening demand for love.
    Never to allow gradually the traffic to smother
    With noise and fog the flowering of the spirit.

    Near the snow, near the sun, in the highest fields
    See how these names are fŠted by the waving grass
    And by the streamers of white cloud
    And whispers of wind in the listening sky.
    The names of those who in their lives fought for life
    Who wore at their hearts the fire’s center.
    Born of the sun they traveled a short while towards the sun,
    And left the vivid air signed with their honor.

  • Amigo, I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Abrazo and thinking about you all day long.

  • eduardo sepulveda

    Y do believe in that: nunca decimos adiós. And gracias gracias gracias por su luz Mrs. Maryanna Harvey.

    Un gran abrazo.

  • My deepest sympathy to you David.
    As a philosopher once said, death is not the opposite of life. It is the opposite of birth. Life has no opposite. Big hug to you my friend.

  • Thinking of you today David.

  • Again, God bless you both

  • Dear David,

    Sending you much love and strength from Miami.
    All the best my friend!

  • David, the strong family resemblance I see above reminds me of your lesson that we look in the mirror and ask ourselves, “What do we see?”. It is the aura of proud love and glowing respect here, whether your mother saw it in your lens or just behind the camera. My thoughts are with you and your family.

  • David,

    Rachel and I send warm thoughts to you & the rest of the family. Thanks for sharing so many of those experiences, it was a great pleasure to have known Maryanna! Let us know if we can help in any way. Be well!

  • Condolences to you and your family. I know she was a special woman.

  • @ DAVID,

    mis mas sinceras condolencias y respeto hacia Maryanna Harvey. 93 años de pura energía que seguirá en el aire…no tengo ninguna duda de eso.



  • David, I’m sorry for your loss. I

  • David and family,
    We are saddened by this unexpected news, yet so grateful that we knew such a special person.
    It was wonderful to talk to her recently at your beach house via skype. Thank you for that.
    Our condolences go out to the Harvey clan. We love you Teetoo.
    Mike and Denise

  • hugs…

    and you too, dearest David…..

  • I’m sorry for your loss. Un abrazo y mucho animo.

  • My condolences mr Harvey.

  • So very sorry for your family’s loss, David. May memory of her be eternal.

  • Sorry for your loss.

  • Oh so sad. And so glad it sounds like she had a long fulfilling life and great children. Thinking of you. CP

  • David, my condolences. Your mom has been so strong in body and spirit I had almost come to believe she would outlast us all. How fortunate you are to have had such a mom and for so long, even though in the end it always seems shockingly short.

  • Abundant things have little value. Two parents seem hardly enough as they are gone too soon. And irreplaceable. Sorry for your loss.

    Mr.David,I am so sorry …hugs and kisses from my family to yours.


  • From the snippets, you’ve shared over the past few years your mother was,indeed,a wonderful woman.
    She will,no doubt, be missed but her light will shine on.

  • Brother David,

    I will be facing this same situation sometime in the future with my parents as they are in their Eightys. I just wanted to say thanks for for reminding me that in death we should CELEBRATE someone life!!!

    Your friend,


  • … And so..
    We lost our mothers on the same day my friend..
    Shared a difficult journey home parallel to each other.

    Life on pause, then an intense arrival.
    Think of the joy we bought them.. The gifts..
    In quiet moments there are the happiest memories.

    Much love to your family and maximum respect for your mother – what a great job she did.

    Mothers are fucking great, as a friend once said.

  • Dear David (Harvey)

    I’m sorry for your loss but inspired by the way you and your family have celebrated your mother. So, once again you inspire others through your actions… and that surely is testament to your mum! thank you for sharing.

    Dear David (Bowen)

    Sad to read your news David, my thoughts are with you.
    Regarding your fb message : ) replying soonest…
    I hope we get to meet in the not too distant future.

    Warm hugs to you both, Sam
