To my wee Aunt Helen,
I will miss you more than anyone will ever know. You have always been there for me, always there with wise words and never afraid to be blunt. I loved that about you.
I will miss having to translate for you in Walmart, even although I was only visiting from Scotland! But most of all I’ll miss your wee cheeky smile and that infectious laugh of yours.
Until we meet in the next life.
I love you x

My most favourite memory was the day your mom saw our daughter for the first time...and I can still hear her today.."what a bonnie wee lassie she is". There are so many memories of your parents it is so hard to pick one. They were very special to all who knew them. May she keep smiling down on us all. Our deepest sympathies to you all.

Helen was one of the funniest people you could ever meet and in that broad accent she never lost. I'll miss the phone calls with dogs barking and Helen shouting "shut up you"! In times of need, she was there even if you'd had a wee falling-out. A loyal friend, your secrets were safe with Helen and she expected the same in return.

Helen ,I have so many happy memories of you and Bert
like the time you invited our family for dinner
and Bert asked me to open the door in the basement
and here was a huge moose hanging there
of course you all thought it so funny
but I almost had a heart attack
I shall keep you always in my thoughts
you were a dear friend in times of need
you are now reunited with your beloved
cheers Helen say hello to Bert for me
