My first memory of my older, sophisticated cousin was in the early 70’s. She was probably 15. Gorgeous, tall, tanned, long blonde hair and eyelashes that went on for ever. And that lip gloss! When I was in 6th grade she came to CT for a visit when Rick was courting her and sending her dozens of roses every day! Those eyes, those nails. That little red car. I wanted to be just like her. I also got to have grown up memories with her four children going to the beach, Six Flags... and then when my son was only 2 and a half she took us to Disneyland and splurged on this amazing dinner and fireworks. The last time I got to spend time with her was five years ago when she took my daughter and I all over LA so we could see the sights. Driving at top speed, with the top down we sped all of the freeways to every place my daughter wanted to go. She was a generous woman who adored her family. She had quite a bit of influence on me even if I didn’t see her but every so many years. She was a force to be reckoned with. And she will be missed. 💜💜💜

I remember many great times spent at the Hoffman house. I especially loved when Helene would launch in to a very long and detailed story about the origin of something, only to find out she made it all up. She'd then say, if you say it like you mean it, no one will question you. I've used her ploy a few times and it always garners some laughs and it always reminds me of her and her smile. Helene was a giving woman and would not hesitate to help watch my kids when I was sick. She even made Rick take me to the hospital once. I told him I'd call when I was released and he said OHHH NO! Helene told me to stay!!! Miss you both.

So many great memories of Deb!! She was always so kind, loving, funny, and always told you just how it was. No filter and always honest! Lol. I loved her so much that I told her I needed my "Deb fix" and to get in her car and drive to Texas! Going to miss Deb so much. I certainly know she and my mom are causing some trouble once again!

We remember Helene (Debbie) as a very cute little girl when we saw her in 1964 and as the cousin who wrote the most amazing Christmas letters.

Once what seemed like a lifetime ago, we decided to go TP a house that all our girls were at. We giggled like schools and laughed so hard we were crying.

You will be missed by so many myself included.
