Helen was like a sister to me. She was a kind, loyal, loving person who only thought was to give of herself for others. This she certainly did, for so many. I bet the Lord is enjoying a cup of good coffee and a donut right now, and wondering how he made it this long without them! She is truly missed but will live on in us. Linda Dubay
