Sending my deep and heartfelt condolences to George, Celeste, Greg and Michael for the loss of our beloved Helene whom I loved and enjoyed visiting some years back. I'll always remember Helene's welcoming smiles and generous dedication, making my days with them, very joyful and feeling "one of the family". Helene will always be in my prayerful memories as I assure my brother, niece, nephew and grand nephew ,of my gratitude for who and what they all mean to me.

John and I had just visited on our trip south from Massachusetts to see Aunt Helene and Uncle George 2 weeks before she passed. I remember Aunt Helene as a beautiful, gentle woman who dearly loved her family. I held her hand and told her how much I loved her and she looked at me with a smile. If we could only know what she was thinking...but her smile told it all. We will miss her and send our love to Uncle George, Celeste, Greg and Michael and will see them again in the Winter for another visit.
