My sympathy to the family in the loss of Helen. I knew Helen and Vernon through the church, and was friends with Helen through church activities such as United Methodist Women. I also enjoyed being in the Tuesday bridge club for many years with her. When we went to her home, she was always such a gracious hostess. I have missed her since she moved to Georgia.
