My sincere sympathy to the family. I have been Helen's Massage Therapist for the past three years. She was a very special, sincere, sensitive lady. I will miss her a lot.

There is hardly a memory from my childhood that doesn't involve you. My other mother through the path in the yard. Many prayers for those left behind. And many more prayers for you and your beloved daughters.
Love, Freckle Sparkle. (Genevieve)
