Not sure what to say?

Helen, I will always remember your great sense of humor. You said the funniest things. I loved going out to lunch with you and just talking (and laughing). I'm going to miss the e-mails we shared together.
I was so proud to show you the first quilt I made.You especially made me feel so good about it (even though I'm sure you found many mistakes). I'm sad that you won't be here to help me along with my next one.
You were one of the kindest,and nicest people I know. You really...

We will all miss Helen at the Burchfield Center in West Seneca. She was a fantastic volunteer with lots of enthusiasm for our activities. She also participated in classes,displayed a quilt in a fiber arts show and created table cloths for our extra-sized tables.

I thoroughly enjoyed her smile, enthusiasm and companionship. We will think of her fondly and often.

Helen was such a dear friend....

I'll always be so touched by her love, concern and support for my family. Helen was such a caring friend during the most difficult of times for my Dad and my family... a painful time when my Mom was being stolen away from us by dementia.
I miss her...

When I think of Helen, once again I'm walking into the entry of Garden Gate Apartments...
And once again I see her beautiful smile...I see her glistening eyes,and once again I...

Helen it was a pleasure to know you and to spend time together. You welcomed me into the family and always stayed in touch. We laughed a lot about lots of silly things. You were there for me on my sewing projects. May You Rest in Peace my Sweet Mother-Law.

Helen was a dear friend, a smiling face and positive outlook in spite of life's adversities. We'll miss her.

As weekend supply over the past year and half, Helen was one of my favorites! She supported my open, eclectic philosphy with an open and inquisitive mind. She loved the PasiPaloosa concert, and I plan to sing one of her favorites when I return. She was always a great addition to our discussion groups and meditation evenings. I will miss her, but she will always be remembered. She represented so much the church's future. I will feel her presence with me often!

Helen was one of those dearest friends anyone could have. She always had a smile on her face, loved the company of others, and always had something positive to say. As a nurse, she was always asking about my new group of nursing students and how they were faring. She will be deeply missed by everyone in the congregation at FPWS.

I will miss our lunches and get togethers over the past few years. May God reward you for your lovingkindness and courageous example of Christian living. Rest in peace.

I always was amazed at the tenacity and courage my mother-in-law showed throughout her life, even in times of great suffering. May you find eternal peace - I miss you.
