Dear Shawn and Family,
Helen has been a part of Brooklyn College and the Public Safety Department family for many years! Her knowledge and history of this Department was invaluable, as was she! Meticulous and precise in her work, her organization and order was truly appreciated and needed! Her wry sense of humor, her direct and pragmatic approach to things was refreshing!
I know that she was called home for her eternal rest, and that gives me comfort, but I will miss our long talks and comparisons about family, travels, Catholic school; her reminiscing of New York when she was growing up, and all the changes that she has seen and experienced. She spoke proudly and loving of you (Shawn) and her Beloved husband (Jimmy), and I felt like I knew you both before even meeting you! Your Mom, Helen was a wonderful woman, one who brighten our world!
My Condolences and Prayers!
