Helen was so kind. When I first came to the family in 1992, I was scared to death. Helen (among others in this awesome family) made me feel so welcomed. She was always quick to offer a sweet word, and her smile was beautiful. I will miss her for sure, but I know I'll see her again. God rest you in peace, Helen.

My cousin with a heart of gold. She was uncle Lloyd and aunt Frances' baby girl. Coppins family reunions won't be the same without her. But God is good. Helen left the earthly body that gave her so much pain to join Denny in heaven.

I loved Aunt Helen. Almost every time I saw her, she mentioned my mother, whom she loved, who passed away in 1981 when I was 18. "Your mother would be so proud of you", or "your mother would have liked that." I am sure she had no idea how much those kind words meant to me through the years.
To Jennifer and Andy, Jeremiah, Madeline and Gabriel, I am so very sorry. I loved your Mom & Dad so much! I am here if you need me. Love, Anna
