Every now and then a person of significance in one’s life goes to their eternal reward. Such is the case for Helen. She was a grand person and I remember her very well. I should remember her. She was my babysitter some years ago and I am not going to tell you how many years ago that was. She will be missed by family and friends. She now resides in the company of her deceased husband and two sons as well as other family members. God please welcome the soul of Helen into Your company and I pray that You will watch over her remaining family.

Susan and Melissa,
We both loved and respected your mother. She was a wonderful lady and had a great sense of humor. We cannot tell you how many times we thought about your mother and father over the years and how much we admired each of them. Please, know that each of them will be in our prayers.

Susan, Missy and Family,
So sorry for your loss. I feel so bad that I’m reading this online just now as I am in Arizona visiting family. I’ve been here since March 4 & won’t return home until April 14. Please know that my thoughts are with you at this time of sadness.
