Thank you Helen for the love and admiration you gave to my Mom! You truly hold a very special place in her heart, and therefore in mine.
I am joyed to know you are in heaven dancing with Jesus.
May your soul rest peacefully in the grace of our Lord and in the light of his love.

Our friendship with the Hines family dates back to 1962. We relocated to Grand Prairie and Benny started working for Bill Hines in the drywall business. Helen and Bill were a dear couple, wonderful parents to Steve and Dennis. We watched these two young men grow up over the years and become fine Christian men with beautiful families. Last time we saw Helen was at her 90th birthday celebration and she was all smiles, enjoying every moment of being surrounded by her precious family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the Hines family. May God grant them comfort, peace and strength in their time of bereavement and the days ahead.

We lived next door to Helen & Bill when I was growing up and I used to baby sit for Steve & Dennis, They were very sweet people and I know Helen will be greatly missed by her family. I am so sorry for your loss.
