I came searching or Helen today. She has been in my thoughts so strongly lately. From my parents deck last week I saw her sitting on the old wooden swing where she sat so many hot summer evenings sharing in conversation.In the distance I can hear her softly singing Little Bobby Shaftoe. *gentle smile* I thought of her weekly visits and the nights I stayed with her at Dennis & D'arcy as a child. Reaches through time and space ......whispers I love you Sobek <3

I met Helen in Cross Creek and played many a pinnacle game with her. She was quite the pinnacle player. Loved her sense of humor, she always made me laugh as we kidded together. She became like family to me. I will miss her dearly, and pray for the repose of her soul daily. Her friend Lori in Cross Creek

I married Susan Provost, Helen's granddaughter, so I married into this wild family. Helen was a key, very fun part of the "wildness". I'm from the midwest, where one person talks at a time at the dinner table. I got to know all of these north-easterners (New Yorkers, Conneticut, New Jersey) pertty quickly, and found that get togethers were never boring. When I met my wife the "gram" stories were already legendary, and her fun, "trouble maker" spirit continued right up to here last few days. I have come to cherish each and every member of this unique family, and will certainly miss Helen very much.
