At A Later Date
I always will cherish the times I got to have conversations with Helen she was always coming up with wise cracks and we would laugh; she had an easy going loving way about her.
I am so very sorry for your families loss; I know she is rejoicing with Jesus as she so badly wanted and deserved.
Hugs and love to all.
