Helen, you are the strongest woman I know. I will miss you deeply.
You are in the arms of Jesus now. Rest easy until we meet again in glory.

I will miss my childhood friend who invited me overnight for Friday night football games at Alexandria. She let me drive her ‘78 Firebird on occasion while we listened to hours of Elton John . We went to dozens of singings and worked years at the cotton mill on night shift together. Helen was a great friend and always had a smile for everyone. I am sadden that she has left us so soon. I will always remember our fun times growing up and miss her sweet smiling face. My prayers and love to Inez, Patsy and Melissa.

my wife of 38 years battled cancer for 11 years had 3 major surgeries and broke her leg twice which she had to have 2 more surgeries. She fought sickness and chemo for those 11 years. She was the strongest woman I know and she will be missed greatly. Now shes in heaven with our lord and savior Jesus christ. Shes not in pain anymore. She has a perfect body free of the cancer. She fought so hard to stay with us but Jesus called her home where there is no sorrow only joy no pain only the grace of God. I know shes smiling down on us saying I'm ok now I'm home.
