A gracious and respectable person whose work has done so much to bring so much joy to many of us in these troubled times hard to deal with (2 Tim 3:1). Perhaps more will continue to have positive experiences from a wonderful work that has an impactful contribution to life and its anxieties.

With deepest sympathy to the family during your time of grief. Psalms 46:1 says " God is for us a refuge and strength. A help readily to be found during difficult times. May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead

I first met Helen after returning to the p.r. field at Samantha Drake, following the birth of my first son. Prior to that, I had been p.r. director for Revlon. Well, dear, darling, Helen. well-known for counting her pennies, got wind of the fact that one of my clients was Nina Ricci and as an avid fan of their sunglasses, called me to request a pair. As we were also located on West 57th, I was over their faster than the Tazmanian Devil, with not just one - but four pairs for my longtime idol - along with the full line of La Praire, which I also represented at the time.

Helen came to the reception desk to pick them up personally, which, naturally, thrilled me beyond belief, and went on to write me one of her heartfelt signature notes of thanks. I immediately responded, as did she in turn and told me that she was going to put my note into her memory book; something she did very infrequently.

Well, the boost of confidence I received from Helen that day, propelled me to write my first book which she honored with a 2-page excerpt in the 25th anniversary of Cosmo. We did keep in touch over the years, but not frequently enough. I only wish she knew (and hopefully she now does from on high) not only what a difference she made in my life; but in the lives of oh-so-many others. She never lost the common touch and yet, could easily dine with presidents and kings.

I loved Helen Gurley Brown. She changed and infused my life with the sort of support one could only wish for in their fondest dreams and I shall miss her presence on this earth desperately.

Clearly, it was her time and she is now - slim and beautiful as ever with her dear David by her side - doing that which she did like no one else here on earth...giving every little mouseburger with wings the supreme confidence to fly higher than she ever could have imagined; and, in so doing, heaven has been gifted with the quintessential voice telling all the angels, "It's never too late..."

Love you more, Helen,

As an Black Women growing up in the 70'x & 80's I admit there were not a lot of choices for us, but I always felt you were not color bound, it was like you were just talking to women in general. God Bless and Keep You.

I spent many hours reading Cosmo when I was young and they made a difference in my life. Thank you HGB for sharing your lifestyle insights!

Rest in Peace HGB, you are one amazing young lady. I will miss seeing you make your entrance into the Hearst Tower each morning so lovely dressed and of course your fishnet stocking. A Great Loss but left a Great LEGACY.
