We grieve for our loss and shed our tears but we rejoice in having enjoyed the blessing of being loved and loving such a wonderful human being. Our lasting memories of Helen will be of joy, knowing she lived a full and wonderful life. We will never forget all her stories that she would tell us over and over again. And we will dearly miss her sharp humor to forever express her witty comments. Helen shared a lot with her family and friends over the years and touched many lives in many ways. Helen loved and she was loved in return. No greater gift can any person hope to give or receive.

The family would like to give special thanks and appreciation to the staff of Tender Loving Care. Owner, Claudette and her family gave our beloved Helen so much love and attention during her last few years with us on earth.
