Dearest Aunt Helen,

I will never forget what you have meant to me over all these years. From the fond childhood memories at the house in Shoreham with you and Uncle Bob, the reunions with all the aunts, uncles and cousins, and the wonderful conversations we have had in the later years. Your love, kindness, generosity, and intelligence have always amazed me. I will miss you so much.

Love always,

Dearest Aunt Helen,
You and Uncle Bob were always the sweetest to us, and holding hands going down the long flights of stairs to the beach. We all loved the delicious crumb cookie pastries from Rocky Point bakery. All of us loved our large family reunions up at Putnam Lake. We have many fond memories of the BBQs and times we would meet halfway at a restaurant with Mom and Dad. Your generosity and love for community service with a smile touched so many people. I will miss our frequent phone calls and your sharp memories of dates and events.
With all our love,
DeeDee (Morrison) Denis, Nicole and Mike Frangione

Helen and I spent a lot of time together over the last four years. I enjoyed hearing all the stories from her childhood and her marriage to her sweet husband Bob. They took many wonderful trips together and she enjoyed talking about those memories. Helen was full of wisdom and I loved learning from her. God knew I needed her in my life. I loved coming over and showing her pictures and sharing stories from my family. I am thankful for every moment I had with Helen and I will never forget her.
