Sorry to hear of Helen "Peanuts" passing. Between life and miles our time together was not meant to be. But I'll always remember the wide smile and sparkling eyes, there till the end. Love to the family. Cousin Valeria Ebert Temple

My mother, my friend, my teacher, my touch stone, my confidant…I will remember more about you than could possible fit on this page. You helped make me the man I am today. Your love of music changed my soul, and I carry it on, as I stroll around my home singing like you did when I was a boy. I will see you again sweet woman, but not yet. Rest in Peace momma, your journey is complete. Love you always - Ray
