Mrs. Helon,was a very sweet person,and I was blessed to have known her,through my wife and my wife's family,when my wife and I got married in 1995. She attended our wedding and reception. My wife's maiden name was Cook. I'm sorry we had lost contact over the year's. May you rest in peace,Dear Lady and child of God. You are now in Our Heavenly Father's Home. All our love,Keith and Pamela Hogue and Family. 😇
