So very sorry Mary, Michelle, Adam, Meaghan, spouses and. children. I know how difficult it is to have lost a parent especially one as special as Helen. Remember the good times and enjoy the legacy she left you. All of you are strong because she was. Live, Love, Laugh that is what she would want for you. God bless you all, you are in my prayers and thoughts during this most trying time.

God bless you Mary. Your mom was a wonderful lady. She was 107 and was as sharp as a tack. She was loving and always charming. She made everyone feel special. She had Joie de Vive. Love her so much...miss her so much. Love , Kris.

Mary was my best friend growing up and Helen and Clarence were my " other" Mom and Dad. So sorry this horrible pandemic kept me from seeing you, I had so hoped to visit this summer, but God needed you by his side, not mine. I will always remember your laugh and twinkle of your eye when you smiled. Rest easy Mama Helen, give Dad a kiss from me. Barbara Christian Mcgoye.
