    Helen was always so sweet to my mom, Jessie Lee, and to me. I loved being around her and Ellen. Both remind me of our wonderful grandmother, Georgia Dunaway as does Patsy. May God comfort and encourage Edie, Pat, and Jodie and your families, your mom was truly a blessing to many many people.
    Thinking of you today.
