David, Karen, Charlie and family,
So sorry to hear the news of Aunt Helen’s passing. We also have such fond memories of her. Bill remembers a time when she made him a bologna sandwich with butter for his school lunch. He was little and didn’t want to tell her that he didn’t want that. :) He took it for lunch and ate it anyways. He hasn’t had one (made that way) since and thinks of her whenever he eats a bologna sandwich today.
She sure loved her family! She was a gift to us all and was so blessed to have had such a long life with them.
Prayers for peace and comfort especially during this difficult time. We are never ready to let go when the Lord calls someone home. Much love, Bill & Robin

I remember aunt Helen with grandma Janet and how close they were as sisters. Now they are reunited in Heaven. Love and prayers to your family. Xo

I’m praying for you all! I often think of aunt Helen. I make her desert she gave me on a recipe card from my wedding shower. Thinking of the family during this time!
