From the first day I met her, there were two things about Helen that summed up her life. She loved our Lord and she loved her family.

Such a classy lady. She emulated what it was to be a child of God. She always had such a pleasant disposition. It makes me a little sad she's gone as the world was a better place with her in it. But I know of the reward she is now partaking of and that makes me smile as she is free of the bonds that weighed on her. Now she gets to Sarah again...that really makes me happy for her. To her family left behind, take pride in the fact that this was a beautiful lady inside and out, that you had the joy to know and one day you will see her again.
