We will always cherish the many years of sharing snowmobile trails with Helen & Ron. Our friendship continued on long after hanging up our snowmobile suits when we would still enjoy reminiscing about all those winter memories. It is with deep sadness to know that we will no longer have Helen in our lives. She will be missed, but always remembered.
