Tommy & all the Heinsohns,

I met Helen @ Healthpoint in Waltham when she was lending her interior design expertise to our construction/design team. She was a GREAT lady and didn't back down to anyone. She was one hot ticket and we had a lot of laughs as she made our meetings truly colorful.I'm sure there are thousands of good stories and great memories about the"Redhead From Needham". She was "First Class"!Keep the memories close to your hearts!

Deepest Sympathies,

Tommy...my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved "Redhead". She was a true original..a kind and spectacularly vibrant woman with the greatest sense of humor and the unique ability to make a new aquaintance feel like a lifelong friend. It was my pleasure once to give the two of you a ride home in my Mazda after dinner with Chet..I always felt badly about you having to squeeze yourself into that very small car. Be well and never lose the zest for life that made the two of you such a perfect fit.

Dear Tommy:
I had the wonderful pleasure to know Helen for over twenty years, and she always made me feel so comfortable to be in her warm and caring presence. She gave me her treasured religious momento a couple of years ago, and I carry it with me every day. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

To the Heinsohn family. I greeve for your loss. To lose a loved one is the hardest blow a family can live with. I did not know Helen, but I am a Celtic fan and as any Celtics fan will tell you she was like the 3rd voice broadcasting games from home as Tommy would tell Celtics nation what she thought of a player or a team. Celtic Nation has lost one of their own. Now she is cheering from a better place. Red at her side. Because even in death we don't loose our Celtic Pride.

Tommy, (and family)
We have met. And I met your wife at the UPPER FALLS post office all the time. She was WONDERFUL, and to be with you (her best friend), all those years, she certainly deserves "A TOMMY POINT" Hang in, and our family is thinking of you through this painful time. She loved you dearly Tommy, and it showed every single time I saw her.
