My sympathy to the family on the loss of a wonderful lady. Helen was always a welcome presence at any gathering. She could find humor in any situation. Helen was never one to put on airs, but was naturally lovely and classy. The Yankees had a top-notch cheerleader in Helen. The shelter cats must fondly remember her warm lap and gentle hands. And all who knew her will miss her companionship and keen sense of humor.
