My deepest sympathies to the family at this difficult time, may you find comfort in the hope that the Bible promises to see Helen again (Acts 24:15).

Paul and Leo,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, including a lifetime of memories that involve experiences with Helen and our families. The experiences we had as neighbors growing up, the good and the unique, and the tragic, and Helen's heart thru them all. Please accept our condolences - and apologies for being out of town on Thursday.
