I remember when Helen was part of the 3-some of her, Alice St. Clair, and Suzanne Miller. Wonderful group of kind kids. The many times Helen and Chub were at parties with classmates and friends. She ALWAYS smiled and laughed with us. And of course the loving care she gave to Chub had to be admired. Several years ago I took Helen to a luncheon with classmates of Chub from RHS52. Naturally she fit right in.
