Helen, my long time dear friend. I miss you so much. I have your Christmas card/picture of yourself that you took in Disneyland sitting in my living room. I think about you often and smile when I reminisce of all the good times we had together working out at the gym and our lunches & dinners we had together. I will never forget the B.C. Lions game we went to. We sure had a lot of laughs, didn't we? I pray every night that your soul is resting in peace. Irene & I are still going to continue to go out for dinner in honour of your birthday every year. Her and I enjoy talking about you and what a wonderful person you were and how much we miss you. Rest in peace my dear friend. Missing you, Yvonne

Helen, our dearest friend.. How I miss you so much and think about you almost everyday. Alexander did the Terry Fox run in your honour for his elementry school which was awesome, I know you would have loved to hear all about it. Yvonne and I went our Special Greek Resturant for your Birthday. Last night we went by the cemetry and put our a beautiful arrangment of flowers for your 1 year passing. You were probably looking down and laughing at the two of us trying to get these flowers to stay up but we finally got it. Can't believe I havent spoken to you in a year. I am sure you are looking down at all of us and smiling. Till we meet again sending you lots of love and kisses...

My name is Lillian Lum, and I came to know Helen in early 2012. I had seen her around at the mall (2011) and everytime our eyes connected, we would smile at each other. I could tell she was a lively individual. We started to chat every once in a while, in passing. What a beautiful soul to be sharing all her positive energy and glowing smile. I did not know Helen was battling cancer until summer. I last saw her when I was with my children, November/December. I only found out yesterday that Helen had passed. Please accept my condolences, family and friends. Helen was a treasure. May God strengthen you and help you in this time of sorrow.

Deepest Sympathies to Helen's family. Helen was a beautiful person both inside and out who showed her caring with her penetrating smile and contagious laughter. Her joyful disposition is missed by all who knew her. May god keep her safe.

Helen, there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. After meeting at the gym we hit it off like we had known each other for years. I will cherish all the time we spent together, your patience and advise you gave me along the way. You were always smiling and ready to hear all my crazy stories. I will miss you forever Thank You for being my best friend.

You are a woman who took on your disease with the same dignity and sense of humor you used for everything. Through the entire battle, you never lost who you were or the qualities everyone loved you for. Your family and friends were always your first priority and this disease only strenghened those bonds. You always faced each day with the delicate balance of living life to the fullest in case your days were limited and yet planning and doing things that made it seem to the rest of us that your life would go on for years. You kept your difficult days to yourself and still always shared the best of yourself with all of us. You will be missed. You brought a little bit of Hawaiian sunshine into all our lives.
