    Sending deepest condolences to your entire family. I have many fond memories of your mother from my childhood on Muriel Drive. Spent so many days at your home, your mother would be part of our swim days, summer days, winter happenings and many sleepovers had at your home she was so kind and sweet. I remember her smiles at the kitchen table always as I entered the home. May she be at peace and prayer is surrounding her and your entire family. Sending love to you all.

    My deepest condolences to the family. Ms Helen was such a beautiful and funny neighbor. I will miss the days when my grandson and I would see her sitting across the street and walking over to talk with her. She was a special neighbor and friend to my family. May she Rest In Peace.
