Dear Bill & family, and friends, too,
I learned belatedly of Helen's passing, and was so sorry to hear about it. We have lost a lovely, gifted, and courageous woman, and my heart goes out to you. I had the pleasure of knowing her for a while when I was filling in as pastor at North Como. I cherished our visits, and found her to be such a strong spirit, so bright and passionate, so generous. I came to her one day with a quilting question, and she pitched in, showing me exactly what I needed to do. She was a gem. You are all in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve her loss. I will remember Helen as someone who had weathered some storms, grown stronger, and lived fully until it was time to go. We are all joined and knit together, writes Paul in Ephesians 4, and I would add, in this life and beyond. Blessings to you all!
