Sandy and Dave, I was so shocked and saddened when I read the e-mail about your mom. I just can't believe she is gone because the last time I visited with her she was so energetic and full of life. Of course that was about 2 years ago but that image will always stay with me. She was so dear to me and I really thought of her as my second mother. She always made sure we "girls" were taken

Sandy and Mike ... My thoughts are with you at this time of your Mom's passing. I knew you guys way back in the old St. John's School days .... over the last number of years I would run into your Mom at a grocery store or a Walgreens and we would swap family news. She always had a smile and a hug for me. My heart goes out to the both of you and your families

My deepest condolences go out to Helene's family. Helene was the best neighbor I have ever had. I will miss her vibrant spirit and her wonderful kindness. Thank you for all of the times you allowed me to help you with small tasks around your home. I always enjoyed our chats & the wisdom that she shared with me. You & your family are in my thoughts & prayers.

We will always remember Helen's spunkiness and upbeat personality when we spent time with her at family parties. She filled the room with joy! She also has the natural ability to rock any baby to sleep! We loved her and will miss her.

I met Helene several years ago through her neighbor, Arlene Bortz, and the first day that I met her she opened up her arms and gave me a big hug and kiss and said how glad she was to meet me, And every tine that I visited Arlene, Helene would always make sure that we had something for desert and as always she was there with her beautiful smile and a big hug and a kiss. I will always treasure the memory of knowing such a beautiful woman.

Sandy and family - I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom shines on in Heaven and here on earth through her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as the many lives she touched. Sandy, I feel like I knew a part of her through the stories you told. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
