I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember the camping trips, the adults playing cards, the Home Interior parties and Easter egg hunts. Lots of love to you all.
David & Family, I am so very sorry to hear about Helen passing. Helen was my work mom when she was working. I will not be at the service as I am out of town. My condolences to the family. She was truly a special lady & friend.
Dave and Family. Many hearts, including ours in Naples, Florida, are reaching out to you today in deepest sympathy. Helen was one of our favorite Lake Anna friends; playing mahjong or working together with the Fire Auxiliary; she was much too young to leave us. May your memories bring peace and comfort in the days ahead. Marty and Kit Carson
