Dearest Natalie, I am so very, very sorry for your loss. Mere words cannot adequately express how much my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. This indeed a time when " deep calls unto deep ". I am so sorry I could not be there as I did not see the notice until this morning. Please call 24/7 if there is anything I can help with. Sincerest condolences, Mary Ann

Helen was a good friend and we enjoyed the time spent visiting her on many occasions during our friendship. She will be missed but knowing she is in a better place and with her husband. We are sorry to hear of her passing.
