Helen was, and still is, one of a kind. I loved Helen with all of my heart and felt her love always. She was kind, wise, so funny, so spirited and feisty, compassionate, and brilliant. We enjoyed many experiences together at the art museum, local plays, getting coffee, sitting on her front porch speculating on life, and in exercise and yoga classes together. I will always have a very special place in my heart for Helen. She influenced my outlook on life and brought happiness to many. God bless Helen's family. I love you Helen.
