As a child we lived next door. Twila and I shared many hours in the wonderful tree that separated our homes. Ms Oswald and Twila are wonderful memories.
My prayer is with all the family with her journey home. Gone but not forgotten.
My love, Karol Garrett Morales

My family moved in across the street in 1958ish. Twilla is four years younger than I am, but we became fast friends quickly! Helen was such a fun mom, extending to including me. Summer days would find blanket "houses" across the clothes line in their backyard. And if we begged our moms hard enough, we were even allowed to eat supper there on occasion. Helen, every year or so, cleaned out old outdated foods from her kitchen. But rather than toss them, she allowed two little girls to "cook" all up and down their driveway. While it kept us busy for hours, possibly days, Helen never complained about the mess.

The other memory, of both Helen and my own mother, is one I have pondered every since I became a mom. Both mothers loved flowers, and so did bumblebees. Twilla and I spent hours catching bees in glass jars. Helen generally let us use a gallon glass for a holding cell. So, there we would be, catching bees and bumblebees in glass jars, dumping them into a bigger jar, and before the day was done, letting them all go. To this day, I can think of no reason, except it kept us occupied.

Helen was a wonderful neighbor, mother, and a fine example of a Christian woman. I am sure heaven is rejoicing at her homecoming. I only wish I could be there to say goodbye.
