Gene, Kenny and Don, Sending my blessings for comfort for you and the rest of your family at this really sad time of Helen/your mother's passing. You boys do not know me, but Gene does, and maybe you do know that Helen, Adria Klein and I were fast friends in Clayton High School and had great times together. Those memories we will always hold dear. Helen was always , well, perky. Perky, optimistic, happy with a beautiful smile. A delight! Her friendship was a special gift.
She was a special gift for all. in memory, from Marsha Weil Schiffman

Dear Gene...I am so sorry to read about Helen's passing. I enjoyed visiting with you and Helen when our Class of 63 had the 70th birthday party. Just to let you know that my thoughts are with you and your family.
