Helen was so kind to all my family. We lived one house over from her growing up. I grew up with her son, Tim. We played under her back porch in the dirt, burying cars. I'm sure she was sick of us running in and out of her house but I don't remember her ever hollering at us. I am sure Helen and Mama are having coffee together every morning in Heaven just like they did here on Earth. I will miss you.

Helen was like my other Mother. My Mom had coffee with her for the last 65 years. Our families grew up together, sharing weddings, births and sadly funerals. She will be missed. Much love to her family
