Love you Helen and family. I did not know her, but I knew a lot about her from Helen’s stories! What a kind, fun-loving and sweet person. I know you will miss her terribly. Losing your mother doesn’t get easier, but it does get less hard. Smile at the happy memories and laugh at the joyous ones! Prayers for all, I will be praying tomorrow for you and if you need me, I’m a call away!! Anytime. Love you.
