Our sincerest condolences to the children and grandchildren of Helen and their families. Auntie Helen was a delightful person and we enjoyed visiting with her. Often our children would mistake her for their Grandmother, Mildred, her twin sister, which made Helen laugh and play along. She will be missed but we know she is in a better place now. We look forward to visiting with all of you at her Celebration of Life on Saturday. Love you all.
