Your mom/Nanny was such a kind soul and she will be missed by so many. She always welcomed me with open arms whenever I visited and I know she loved each and every one of her children and grandchildren so much, it was plain to see! I cannot imagine how difficult a time this must be for you all, and I hope it brings comfort to know your “Nanny and GongGong” are reunited together in heaven. Their legacy is a truly wonderful family, and today’s service was really touching and beautiful in spite of the circumstances.
Sending everyone my deepest and most sincere condolences.
Marie-Claude (-NannyClaus 💕 as Carl and Helen affectionately would say)

I have so many fond memories of Helen. When I visited my sister Marion in Canada, we always looked forward to getting together with Helen and her family.
She was a remarkable woman, she had a big loving heart heart, a wonderful sense of humor and she was a lady in every sense of the word. It was a joy and privilege to have known her; she will be dearly missed.
My deepest condolences to her lovely family,

Aunt Helen we will miss you very much. We had so much fun with your family growing up on King Edward Ave. The memories we have of you and Uncle Carl are beautiful. As kids your house was the place to be it was wonderful to be there with you, Nanny, Carol and Donna playing cards and just being together. You were always a special part of my life and also my children’s lives. I love you very much and will miss you. God bless you Aunt Helen you are now at peace! 💕💕💕
