Cherie wrote, “Our darling mother Marie Harmon was a fantastic comedic actress! She never shared her movies with us kids. Had I known the great stock I came from I would have taken myself seriously as an actor. Though she gave up the glitz to have us kids she never lost the glamour. A true star to the end and we will miss her beauty and wit every single day.”
