Helen was a wonderful woman as I called her.
So many memories of her, she will be missed dearly. My prayers and thoughts are with family at this time.
Helen had always talked about growing up with her mother and grandmother. The things they would cook that was picked from the garden.
Always talked about her children who was always being punished during meals. No names cheryl.. Helen may have not said it too often but she loved her family! I will always remember Helen never be forgotten. I love you ! Rest in peace we will see you again in everlasting life!
