Very sorry to here of the passing of aunt Helen. Barb and I are probably not going to be able to be at the memorial service. I have many memories of visiting with and being visited by Helen and Harold during my childhood. She and my mother, her sister Maudie, were closest in age of all the girls and were close during their early years. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.
