Rich, Susan, Tom and families,
We are all very sorry to hear of Helen's passing but we hold on to the promise that she is in a better place. I have many fond childhood memories of our families spending a week each summer together in Ocean City and many other wonderful times. Helen always opened her home and her heart to all of us as you all did. With Dad's recent passing, we are sorry we could not be with you at this time but please know we are keeping you all in our prayers. Love, "Angel"
