Helen Napoli was my aunt (my father's sister). She always treated me with great kindness. I'm deeply saddened to learn of her passing.

Helen was a close friend, more like a sister, the last 53 years.
The only way I can describe her, is to say she was kind, generous, loving, caring, bright, beautiful, and a great cook as well.
She loved her family and friends, and we are all fortunate to have known her, and have shared a part of her life.
Rest In Peace my friend. I hope you are reunited with your beloved Angie.

Helen was a one in a million woman. She was the most caring, generous, witty, and vivacious woman I have ever met. She was a true inspiration to me. Her beautiful spirit will be sorely missed. Her warmth and love of life will live on in those whose lives she touched. I will personally try to live by her example and live every day to the fullest. May she rest in the sweetest peace with her beloved Auggie, and be our guardian angel. My dear friend and guide....

My friend. Our friend. Helen was one of my loyal participants in my Tuesday and Thursday evening classes at the YMCA. We shared many events together over the years. My most cherished memory was that Helen was instrumental in honoring me as a Woman of Distinction and I will forever be grateful to her and her wonderful spirit. She will be always be in our hearts and never forgotten.

There are too many special moments and memories to state..Helen was the most vibrant, funny, caring person I can truly say I ever met. I truly believe that certain people come in to our lives at a given time for a reason. Helen was that special person. We had many common bonds and shared fun times and conversations. I will miss that friendship terribly and treasure the time we spent together..rest in peace my dear friend...💔💔
