to a great friend and co-worker at the Gregory school. We worked hard but we still had time to laugh and talk a bout the fishing . I thought of you often and the hard times that you were faced with. You were a brave and strong person. I will never forget you and promise to plant some moss roses for you and Marv. A friend Veronica Frasch Gregory, S.D

It was a blessing to me to have been one of Helen's friends. She was a great help when I started working at Louie's Grocery Store because of her smile and friendship, also her laugh. We had a great time and was sad when she quit working there. We always enjoyed her tales about their weekends at the river. I am so thankful I got to speak to her one more time before she let go to a better place with no more pain and sadness. Peace be with all her family and friends. A friend Barb

Helen - my little sister. We talked for hours over the last few months. I heard your wonderful stories and memories and I shared mine with you as well. Even though it was the hardest thing I've had to do in my life I'm very honored that I had this time with you. As we spoke about on many occasions I will not be at your service. We have said our good byes and I don't think I can face

Aunt Helen,
Where do I even begin with you. You were the nicest person to everyone that you met. You weren't a person quick to judge and you were quick to open your heart up. You were and always will be a huge inspiration to me. Your strength, your power to fight, how you could smile even during the toughest moments. I'm glad I could sit and talk with you and be by your side when you needed us
