    I’m very sorry for the loss of Helen. I will always love my memories of Helen and Freda. They were the dynamic duo… laughing and enjoying their time together. Helen with her funny and mischievous stories, and Freda laughing along with her. I’m not sure where time has gone…..but I’m sad that these 2 beautiful ladies will not share stories anymore.

    Many prayers are sent your way. May your memories bring you peace and healing.

    We are so sorry to read about your Mom. I have so many great memories of her and all of you kids. When we all lived in Calif., she once gave me a “Brandied Fruit” starter from her bubbling jar. I kept it going for years.
    John, I remember you and I teaching the English kids how to play “Cowboy & Indians”.
    She is missed. God bless and be with you all.

    Love, Lon & Denise
