Too many laughs to remember. Tuesday’s were my favorite day of the week because I was honored to pick you up at your home and drive you to the bowling alley so you could see all of your friends and hang out for a few hours. Magical evenings. Heaven was missing an angel and it was a matter of time before God called you home. You will be the first person I will look for when I get to heaven. ( Assuming of course I make it there ) Good by my friend and know that you touched my life in so many positive ways and I will always love you. Russ

I remember so many wonderful evenings at the Rector's with George and Helen - the evening would start with cocktails, then a short drive over to Tortilla Inn where a table was always waiting, back to the Rector's for more cocktails.

I got such a positive education during those times - George always had an opinion but was receptive to an opposing view. Helen was always interested in my budding career as an educator - and she always took special interest in how Nancy and my kids were doing.

There was only one Helen - no one else will ever be like her
