I am very sorry for your loss😢
Helen was such a great woman and there are not enough words to explain this amazing kind, loving, down to earth woman with the soul of an angel.
I am so sorry that I did not get to come visit you with the kids sooner and I am deeply saddened when I just learned of your passing.
You and Doug meant so much to my family and I. You both were truly a blessing to us and I will never forget either of you as you will both remain in our hearts always.

So sorry for the loss of your mother Helen! I just saw the obituary and know she is at peace with your Dad. My husband Roland passed away about 4 months ago and now am alone. All my prayers and sympathy go out to your family!

Where do I even begin....Helen you truly were a loving, caring, thoughtful, funny, compassionate, kind, fighter!!!! Everyday with you was truly a gift for me. We made each other laugh through the tough times, held each other when we needed to cry, practiced our sensual food tasting so we could become QVC food tasters, ceramics with the ladies, drinking our Dunkin coffee, and eating things neither of us should b eating. You taught me many new things to cook, some of which made me go eww but you loved making me go eww didnt u little miss??. You listened, and never judged, offered the most down to earth and from the heart advice. I loved listening to ur stories starting out as a new wife and mother, ur childhood, ur struggles, and your accomplishments, the biggest being ur marriage, children, and family. I came to you after you lost Doug, you struggled so much, you didnt understand why things happened the way they did, now you are both together again, your heart is whole, and you're not suffering anymore. That is the only thing that makes me happy in all of this sadness. I will cherish every memory, laugh, tear, snack, drive, talk, hug, and "I love you" we shared. Thank you for letting me into your life, your family, and your heart. I miss you more than words can describe, I love you my little sidekick, I will never ever forget you!!!!
Love you allways, ur "Google Queen"
