Not sure what to say?

My deepest sympathy to the family of Helen. I loved her dearly. I volunteer at the Oaks and on the Mondays that I came she would always sit right in front of me with that beautiful smile while I play the piano. I was so glad I got to attend her 100th birthday party. I was at Richfiel this Monday to visit her and they told me she had just passed away. I will miss her very much.

Love you Aunt Helen!!


My deepest sympathy to Helen's family. My husband, Dr Bill Poe, and I loved her through the years when she worked with him at the Roanoke Valley Medical Clinic on Franklin Road. Her friendship to our family will always be a cherished memory. Her radient smile and beautiful Christian spirit has blessed so many. Shalom. June P. Poe
