As her new neighbors (1146 Kenneth Dr), Paula and I knew Helen only a few months but appreciated her and her love of our Lord. It was my pleasure to help repair some of the post-storm damages around the house.

Our condolences to the family.

So sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. May you know God is with you as you make the adjustments in the days ahead.

As a neighbor, we will miss seeing her pass our house on her way to where ever!

I was so sorry to hear about Helen’s home going. I will miss her terribly. She loved the Lord. She loved her family. She loved to make people feel special. We had a lot of fun and adventures together. She was a dear friend. I am praying for the comfort of her family and friends.

Eric and Candice, you lost a treasure when you lost your Mom. She was unique, one of a kind and a wonderful person. But, of course, you always knew that. When I became a State Farm agent in 1989, she not only mentored me, but more importantly, she befriended me, and we remained friends till her passing. I will miss her. Keep her memory close to your hearts, think of her often and smile.

I have lost a great friend, whom I did not know was ill. Went to Florida and we had planned to have lunch when I returned, instead Helen is eating at the banquet table in Heaven. I will miss her forever. She loved her family, and Jesus very much. And yes, she loved me as a friend. See you again dear Helen.
