Scott, Keven and families I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of Aunt Helen. A very fond memory for me was when Aunt Helen and Aunt Gisele paid me and my family a surprise visit here in Newfoundland. It was a pleasure for us to show them the beautiful sights that we enjoy here everyday. Once again my deepest sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

My mom, Helen (Marie Helen actually) has left her earthly home and has now been translated into the presence of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Much of mankind believes she is gone and that this is the end. But the bible teaches us that she is not gone at all and that this is only her beginning.

The first century Christians were the first to use a specific Greek word "koimeterion" from which we now get the word 'cemetery'. Those early followers of Jesus used that word because koimeterion means "a sleeping place". So the picture is not "the end" but rather it is a place where we begin our rest.

Jesus Himself used that Greek word when His friend Lazarus died...
Jesus told His disciples “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going so that I may awaken him from sleep.” (John 11:11)

Jesus has already awoken Helen from her sleep...

So I will certainly miss telephoning her and then constantly reminding her to move the phone to her mouth. And I will wish to once again listen to her fiddle with her hearing aids. On this earth I will not be able to hear her say once more that she loves me (which she always said). My wife, our children, and our grandchildren will no longer receive cards on their birthdays and at Christmas (mom NEVER missed anyone's birthday) and we surely have those empty places.

But we do not live as those who have no hope but rather, we live with the "blessed hope" of Titus 2:13

So to mom/Helen we do not say goodbye...
Instead we say as you always did...
"À bientôt" - "See you soon"

Love Kevin and Karen

My husband and I fondly remember Helen as little Helen. I remember the spunky little lady she was. Every Tuesday there was four of us that quilted together until she couldn’t get around very good anymore. I remember she had a manly name for that cane of hers and always joked that she could get us with it if we misbehaved. We called her little Helen because she was the shorter of the two Helens in our group of four. I will and have always the little box of Christmas brooches just out of the blue she gifted me with because she seen I have a collection that I would wear sometimes. Lastly, I will always remember the testimony of her faith and how much God meant to her. One day Little Helen I will see you again and we will both dance on the streets of gold. You are dearly loved and you own a space in my heart.

Helen was a wonderful, joyful, funny, witty, kind favourite friend. Always had something good to tell you. One of the best people at New Beginnings Community Church. My sympathies and prayers to her family.

Although you were not my Grandma, I knew you as such. Grandma, you were a huge part of my life as Jenn constantly mentioned you or said when you were coming for a visit and it was never a bore. I and my family will take care of her to the best of our abilities.
To the family, I am sorry for your loss, Grandma was quite a special woman and I am glad I got the chance to get to know her. Sending lots of hugs and positivity in this difficult time.
