Many wonderful memories of as a child my folks would take us to Malad to visit and later in Gooding. Dad, Forrest Helms, along with his sister Gloria, and brother Wayne spent a few years living with Theodore and Alice when their mother passed away unexpectedly a few days after Wayne was born. Dad always felt his aunts and uncles were more like brothers and sisters. Dorothy was 5 years older than dad. My brother Van, traded Uncle Edward a dog named Bingo for a horse named Lucky. Another time there were several horses in the pasture. I was told they were wild—didn’t matter I caught one and rode it. No one was happy about that. A very beautiful family that grew up close. You will be missed by many but what a reunion you are having now. Love all the family
