Helen has lived right across the street from me for 20 yrs. She and Al are missed so much. They were very dear to me. Helen helped me with high altitude baking. She would share how she was baking pies for everyone in her family. Helen loved to joke with me and then she would wink her eye big letting me know she wasn’t serious. They loved the children in the block and would buy them Christmas gifts. I loved all of their stories, even over and over. It was an honor living across from them. You are missed Helen. I love you. Karen
