Not sure what to say?

Please allow God's Word to comfort you at this difficult time. Isaiah 51:12

My deepest sympathy may the God of peace and all comfort be with the family(Psalm 147:3).

Jeff and family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. She was a very beautiful person through and through. Our paths crossed many, many times throughout the years....playing tennis, Womens Club of Odessa, Peach Festival...she will surely be missed.

Dave Alford, Helen's son was my ex-husband. I admire this family to the core of my soul. They are all extraordinary in their compassion for others and their love for one another. I was so very blessed to be a part of it. Their parents raised such wonderful children and it shows in them thru Helen's grandchildren and great-grandchildren. What a wonderful legacy she has left behind. If only everyone could be like Helen and this family. May she rest in peace with her parents, siblings, and...

I'm so sorry for your loss. Our loving heavenly Father is the God of all comfort. May he give you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

I could not believe that Hellen had passed...I met her when I worked for Acme on Green Street....Every time we would see each other we would talk and laugh together...She was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. Im sure she will be missed... Just try to remember the good times God bless all of you

My condolences to the family for the loss of your loved one. Words cannot always soothe the pain felt. It is my hope that you find comfort in turning to our Heavenly Father in prayer for the comfort he provides. Psalms 65:2.

As an attorney for 4 years for the Democrat Caucus I had the pleasure of getting to know and work with Helen. Her smile was always the very first thing to greet staff and the many visitors to our Caucus. She was a classy sweet lady who I hope I can only emulate in my old age. I am very sorry for your loss but you can be assured she is among the angels in heaven. Fondly, Mary E. Sherlock, Esq.

I was sorry to hear about Helen's passing. She was such a dear lady and I am glad I got to know her when she worked at Legislative Hall as one of the Receptionists. I know she was also a great addition to the town of Middletown especially while working on the Peach Festival. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
