Helen you do not know me personally but I am Delores Compagnon Roy's sister (Sandy Compagnon Park) from Winnipeg. Delores told me so much about you and Joe, what wonderful people you are. I included Joe in my prayers every night. May God stay by your side in your time of healing. My heart tells me God is going to let you know very soon that he has already given you extra strength you won't even know you were capable of having. He do indeed work in miraclious way's.

Helen,, Dina and Matthew,

Perhaps they are not stars but rather
openings in Heaven where the love of our lost
ones shines down to let us know they are happy

Thinking of you to-day and sending you strength during this most difficult time.

Dear Helen - Just a note to you with my heartfelt sympathy. Although I did not meet Joe, I am sure that he must have been a good man to have married such a wonderful person as yourself. I know that you will miss him and your life together and I pray that you will get through this too. You have been through so much in the past few years and I often wonder why but God has a master plan for all of us and this has been yours so far. You have been blessed with two lovely children and I hope you will all stay close and be there for each other. Much love to you Helen - Nelda
