Dear Helen's Family,
We are so sorry to read of Helen's passing. She was such a delightful person with that huge grin and quiet dignity. She, Mary, and Joyce were really great tablemates. They would make anyone laugh when they were critiquing some of the meals at Heritage Haven. I am sure the "girls" there became really good cooks because of them!
They shared some unique stories and it is a testament to the three of them, even though, they are or were in the last steps of their life journeys, they could become friends to each other and like family members to us. With Helen goes another piece of our Mom but leaves more fond memories.We will miss her.
