Helen was as indomitable as she was gracious. She and John were wonderfully dedicated and hilariously complementary to each other. The world will surely miss you, Helen. Faye Harrison and I bid you Rest in Peace.

Helen and I were colleagues and best of friends during our time together at Rutgers University during the 1970s. Helen went on to U FLORIDA and I to other places. We kept in touch from time to time. She was a great person, a major contributor to Latin American Studies, and a fine friend. It would be good if LAP could do some kind of Memorial tribute to her.

Faye and I wish you peace on your journey. We will always remember the graciousness of John and you, your hilarious complementarity with John, and our wonderful get-togethers. May the angels lead you to Paradise.

I met Helen two years ago when I started working as a librarian at UF. And I feel grateful and honored to have met her, to have talked with her at presentations and parties. It is difficult to forget her kindness, her support, and her tireless interest in the joys of life to the end.

Helen Safa was a dear personal friend and colleague for decades. She inspired many students and worked hard to advance our education and social change throughout her distinguished career. She and I shared joyous moments of work and sad moments of loss from which each of us bounced back, always supporting one another, both personally and professionally. Many are those who learned from her and, like me, will miss her. She is with us as we move ahead, and her works, like her example, speak to us forever. Thanks, Helen.

Helen was a great friend and mentor, an inspiration to so many. I was privileged to meet her decades ago and to know her well after moving to Gainesville. She made a great difference by charting the way for feminist scholars and activists working throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Her spirit will shine brightly for the generations that follow.
