Thinking of you at this time. Enjoyed time spent with your mother. She will be missed. 💜

Helen was one of the nicest ladies we ever met. We enjoyed going to her garage sales where we not only enjoyed her cinnamon rolls and crafts but most of all her wonderful smile and warm personality! God will have a great Baker and an Angel with a lot of love!
