Not sure what to say?

We have known Helen for many years. As long as we have known her, she has always had a great sense of humor and always pleasant. We enjoyed how much she loved Christmas and decorations. She always joked with Butch about his hat. Rest In Peace Helen. We will miss you.

I'm at a loss for words today, this is the woman that I also called MOM, she babysat me from the time I was 4yrs old thru the age of 12. I was very close to the Bell Family, going on family vacations and family reunions with them. They were my 2nd family, they treated me and my mother like one their own.

My biggest regret is falling out of touch with them over the past 20 years, after my mother passed away, and that truly breaks my heart.

R.I.P MA Bell! I will never...

To the Bell family, I wish to send my condolences for your loss.
