I will always remember Helen for her laugh! In fact, she was recognizable for it! I remember as a child, shopping with my Mom at Pick n Save one day and I heard "the laugh". I said "Mom, Helen is here!". I promptly ran up & down the aisles until I found her and got a big hug. She always called it like she saw it & wasn't afraid to call anyone out! She has cared for so many people over the years, and truly loved her family. I loved her growing up & as an adult, appreciated her friendship. She is the kind of person you never forget, and she will be greatly missed.❤
