Your Mom was a lovely lady! She was always there with a smile and words of encouragement -- a much-needed ray of sunshine during dark times. She was a strong, positive force to be reckoned with! I will miss that impish twinkle in her eye and easy laugh that she offered to everyone. Rest well, Helen.

Helen was one of the kindest, most generous, all-around wonderful people I have ever known. She welcomed me to her family with open arms and over time she became my second mom. Some of the best (and biggest) meals I’ve ever eaten were at her table. I even adopted her method of listing everything that needed to be cooked and in what order. Helen introduced me to canederli, a northern Italian specialty, which I LOVED. At Christmastime there always were a multitude of gifts for me. And the cards! We used to laugh because I could NEVER get a greeting card out on time. But Helen never missed an occasion, even in her later years. I will always be grateful for Helen’s common sense, her sense of humor and her love. She will always be in my heart. Love you, Mom!!

I was honored to be one of Aunt Helen's nieces and will very much miss our phone conversations. They always ended with the words I love you. What a lovely memory. To my cousin Diane especially so very sorry for your loss. Love you too.
