I enjoyed getting to know Helen when she was part of the Boy Scout Crew at OH. She was always willing to try new things and seemed to like when we we would sew and do other crafts. I am truly sorry to hear of her passing- I will miss her.

Helen was always a ray of sunshine at any family gathering. She was full of love that she was never afraid to give, and we all loved her. I’ll most fondly remember the letters she wrote to me way back when she worked at Winn-Dixie.
