I have many memories of Aunt Helen, her generosity of time, love and service to her Lord and Savior. In her final days I had the privilege to be with her in the hospital. She spoke alot about the love she had for her sister and to the rest of us. She was at peace with herself and just wanted to verbally share her love because she knew she was leaving this world soon. I love you Aunt Helen, Rose Mary.
