A great lady has passed. My family and I adored Helen. She defined the words "gracious" and "thoughtful". The world is a lesser place now without Helen in it.

What a beautiful and gracious lady! My heart goes out to the family and friends on your loss. My mother, Sarah Snow, had her hair done at the same place as Mrs. Andrews. She always spoke so highly of her and, on the few times that I was there, could see why she thought so much of her. May your happy memories of her life always sustain you and be with you.

I loved my great aunt Helen like a second grandmother. She was a great lady and I so enjoyed her calls to me the past several years. My sympathies to all the Andrews family. I wish I could be there with her family to celebrate her life. May she be rejoicing in Heaven with her beloved husband Bernie and all our loved ones who went before her.
