I am a niece to Helen. My father Ron and her husband Gordon were brothers. I don't remember a lot about Helen because I didn't see her often, but I do remember, as a young child, going to visit at her house in Vernon with my family. I remember being in awe of her. I thought she was such a "proper lady." I remember her as being a very kind person. I only saw her once as an adult. That was at a convention in Kamloops, where we had a little visit. I really regret not visiting her over the years - but I suppose a lot of us say that, as we are all so busy with our lives. I share the same hope that Helen had, of living in an earthly Paradise, where sickness and death will be things of the past. I see from the obituary that Helen has a niece and 2 nephews that live in Kamloops. If you would like to meet sometime, our number is in the book. I hope today is filled with pleasant memories.

When I first met Helen, I was a little shy and nervous. I didn't know exactly what to expect because we were sisters meeting for the first time. I was soon relieved when I saw that smile and heard that soft and kind voice. She and I would stay in contact throughout the next 25 years and even when it was hard for her to communicate, she knew she was always and will always be in my heart.
