Thank you, Cousin Helen for all the memories I have cherished over the years. I am forever grateful for the time we spent together, Pizza on Friday nights, our chats at Missouri, NC, TN and VA whenever we were able to spend time together.

My favorite memory from my childhood was the time my family went to King Dominion for Deaf Awareness Day when I was about 10, there was long line of people waiting to get on rides and you were able to get us in front of the line because of your wheelchair so we could get on many rides that day instead of waiting in long lines. by the end of that day, I was exhausted and you let me hitch a ride on your lap as you wheeled us around. I also enjoyed our chat about LIFE.

Love you and Cousin Bill! You both have reunited once again!

Helen was my best friend since we were kid. She was very, very sweet. I love her always. I know that she is happy to be with her husband, Bill.

Helen was such a sweet lady. When we moved to Richmond in 2019, we immediately connected and her sweet spirit brought a smile to my face. Even though she was a Redskins fan, we still teased each other about me being a Cowboys fan. Love her sweet heart and radiant smile.

I have known and loved Helen for years. Everytime I would see her, I would ask her if I could "smell her" which was code for "can I have a hug?" She always had the best smelling perfume and this I will always remember.

When I was first learning ASL she and Bill always would spend time and help me with my ASL. I miss them both!

Helen you always gave the best hugs ❤️ I love you!!
