"I will forever be your guardian angel to take care and protect you and will love you, my family and friends, forever eternally, pls do not cry for me for I am well and with Martin". This is something Helen would probably say. If you see 2 butterflies or 2 doves near you, it is a sure sign that they are with you. Well, my friend will definitely miss you and think of you & Martin every time I will be watching Survivor or Big Brother. Will remember our talks, laughs, and Martin tormenting you with love! Forever in my heart you will be.
My deepest sympathies to the families. May God heal your hearts with her smile and memories. Helen, love you from the moon and back. Carmelle, Marc && Melissa xoxo
