To : Lloyd , Pat, and all of her extended family.No one could ask for a better friend than Helen. It was a shock and still is to hear of her passing. God could not have picked a better angel to be in Heaven with him. I will truly miss her daily post on Facebook where she always had a kind word to say to brighten up your day or help you to walk down memory lane with her.She was truly a good and faithful wife and a great mother and grandmother. She will always be in my memories and heart. I love you Helen.
