I am the eldest daughter of “Zeke” Hopkins, Helen’s brother. As west coast relatives we didn’t have very much contact with our east coast relatives so primarily kept in touch through birthday and holiday correspondence, as well as phone conversations.

I was fortunate to have one occasion to visit the Timberlake’s in Dallas, and Marty and I were especially blessed when Aunt Helen and Neal attended our wedding in October 1992.

Taking advantage of a training work assignment between Macon and Charleston I was able to attend Neal’s funeral in August 2007 where I meet many of Helen’s childhood friends, as well as the Timberlake clan.

After a holiday at Disney World, Marty and I traveled to Pointe Verdra to spend a couple of days with Aunt Helen in December of 2007. She loved to share the family heritage so we opened many a document and numerous albums.

Aunt Helen was an extraordinary gracious woman, keenly interested in staying active, and keeping up-to-date with political leaders and their policies.

My condolences go to Glenn, as well as the Timberlake family, knowing she will be greatly missed.

Aunt Helen was my Father's only sister. She was a beautiful, elegant southern lady with a special charm. She had a great sense of humor and an easy soothing laugh. I enjoyed and will miss our long telephone conversations. Aunt Helen was not an advocate of email or texts. We wrote letters or spoke on the phone only.

Rest in peace Dear Aunt Helen. Sending my condolences and prayers to Glenn, the Trammel family cousins and the entire Timberlake Family.

I am a cousin of Helen's. She was 13 years older than I. I always looked up to her as the kind of woman I would like to be when I grew up. She was a beautiful woman full of grace. My sympathy to her son, Glenn, and all the many family members and friends she had. We will all miss her.

My prayers go out to the family, especially Glen, Marion, Meg and Mike. Helen was my cousin. Her Mom and my Mom are sisters. They are all together now in heaven. I will miss Helen. We always called each other around our birthdays and holidays. She will forever be beautiful and a gracious lady. Love, Peggy

Prayers for the family. We will miss Helen and her beautiful smile. She was a Lady right to the end. She has left us as being the family living in our section the longest now. I will miss her light being on at night as we both burned the midnight oil. It was from the upstairs of their home that we made the decision to build on our lot. It was pouring rain and we took shelter there to look at the lot from afar. We have missed Neil and the way he managed our lake issues. He always had that under control. As I look over tonight I still see a light burning. She will forever remain in our hearts and thoughts.

What can I say. Love you Mom. Miss you. You and your smile made life so much better for everyone you knew and met. You made such a difference in people's lives you knew and even those you did not even know. You had a great time dancing in this world. Now you can dance and travel when and wherever you choose. Thank you for being a great mom to me and Teresa. Rest in peace I love you. Glenn.
