I was able to spend time with Helen several years ago in Florida. I was a beneficiary of her generosity – as well as a witness to her indefatigably helpful spirit. I visited with her for several days, and went to the food pantry at her church that she ran when she was approaching 90 years old. I saw firsthand how helpful she was to strangers, regardless of their circumstances. This was a remarkable accomplishment for someone her age. I found her strength and persistence quite inspirational. No surprise, considering my interactions with the many beautiful people in the Mross family over the years. My condolences to all that are feeling the loss of Helen Mross.
