I will always remember Mrs. Garland's laugh. Any time Judy and her friends did anything goofy she always had the best laugh. I guess that's where the family got their great sense of humor!

Keeping you all in my prayers.

A favorite memory of Helen is making Judy and I play outside in the 100 degree summer heat when she would Pray the Rosary. As children we thought it was so mean and that it took forever. Now I know she just wanted some extra peace and quiet away from two silly and loud girls, she was pretty smart. I think 40+ years later she still thought we were silly and loud together, but that we’d always be there for each other, I hope that made her happy.

My condolences to the entire Garland family, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
