Sincere condolences to Helen's family and friends. I enjoyed her work for many years and she was an inspiration to many women. She was ahead of her time, I believe.

I have several bright memories of Helen. She was all the things that morph in an obit...and more.

Each year "Cosmopolitan's" sales staff hosted thirty promotional lunches at the "21 Club" for advertising agencies and/or advertisers. Helen was the draw.

On one special occasion, in front of ten of the largest New York advertising agency CEO's, Presidents and COO's, Helen was gracious, sincere, affable and mesmerizing. I'm confident that all those heavy hitters went home to their wives and told them about having lunch with THE Helen Gurley Brown. (She was as amicable when meeting a junior media planner.)

Following the lunch Helen wanted to walk back to the office and I escorted her. I remember her diminutive form ensconced in a full length fur confidently striding up 5th Avenue...with me in tow. Passerby's recognized her. Helen was a publishing force, yet comfortable in her celebrity.

About six years later I wrote to Helen when I was practicing chiropractic. Even though she was the Editor and I in sales, I found that I connected with her in some inexplicable way. I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to her when I left "Cosmo".

I wanted Helen to know that I appreciated working for "Cosmo" and what I was now doing. I never expected a response. But I received one have. As usual her words were kind and encouraging.

Helen Gurley Brown was an extraordinary person.

I met you back in 1986 at the Universal Sheraton Hotel for the Miss Hollywood International pageant where I MC'd the event.
You were such a lovely lady! May GOD be with your family and loved ones as you have passed on. Blessings and comfort to you all.

Helen Gurley Brown understood millions of women who liked men too much to be strident feminists, and liked life too much to be housewives. Obviously, she was a single girl's best friend and got many of us through a lonely night with her unflagging optimism and flirty attitude. While some people didn't take her seriously, her millions of readers certainly did. She gave us all something to aspire to and taught us to create an exciting life and not settle for whatever life handed you. She lived her philosophy, and that's why it rang true. I hope she is reunited with her beloved David and is at peace.

I met you once at a Library Conference in NYC, and listened to you speak. You were gracious, determined, witty and intelligent. I was so impressed and awestruck. Thank you for your contributions to this world we live in.

Rest in Peace Ms. Brown- You have taught so many so much. I have always followed your cold water face washing practices. The love story with your husband is an absolute dream. Thank you for your innovation and sound advice.
