    My wonderful cousins (Tony, Heidi and Angie)- your loss is felt within the whole family. I remember hanging around Helen as a child and being so envious of her. She had many close loving friends that she thought the world of and them of her, always smiling even if she wasn’t smiling inside. Helen was always so beautiful and stylish and classy, any young girl would look up to her. But most of all I remember how much Helen always loved her sibblings. I think Helen was the first women I really knew that drove a standard vehicle- VW Bug, remembering the summer she was willing to teach us (Heidi, Monica and myself) how to drive a standard… and never made me feel bad cause I was to scared to try…. Helen- you will be very much missed. I take comfort knowing you will be resting with some amazing people and will no longer be in pain. Show them in Heaven Helen how it is done up there!!! We will all meet again, Love you, your youngest cousin Gayle
