    I’m so sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. We were neighbors for 9 years on Harvard Ave. Her and Harry were the sweetest couple who always had a friendly hello and big smiles. God Bless your family and may He bring you comfort.

    I was a long time neighbor of Helen and Harry on Harvard Ave. She was very kind and was a happy person. Both of them enjoyed walking in the neighborhood and varies malls. You fly high beautiful Helen .

  4. I met Helen & Harry when they came into Hallmark. They were always smiling and so kind. My heart broke for Helen when Harry died. She continued to shop in the store and we always had a good conversation & warm hugs. She was a special lovely lady. I will miss her and her beautiful smile and positive outlook on life. She sure touched my heart. Blessings for peace and comfort to all her family. I know you carry many warm sweet memories of Helen. I loved the happy cute picture of Helen as a little girl, she never lost that twinkle in her eye and that pretty smile.
