My memory of Helen will always be one of the warm embrace of love. No matter who, no matter when, she made you feel loved and welcome. It was an honor and blessing to have known her, and the love she gave to all continues through her family legacy

Hi grandma,
Thinking of all the love you gave me today, and how I don't think there is anyone else besides Jesus who could've done it better, you're hugs and kisses and care were such a comfort to me! I miss you, but I'm happy you are with Jesus

When I went to prepare Mom with just a touch of makeup and do her hair, I felt the hand of grief literally squeeze my heart! But I had to do this for Mom. She looks "BEAUTIFUL". My heart hurts so bad, I miss and love you Mom! Your dooder, Mardene

I just went down to see Granny in the casket and she looks beautiful, as always. She is so peaceful looking and I am happy and secure knowing that she is no longer in pain since it broke my heart to see her suffer and struggle to breathe.

Grandma always had an open door to her home, possessions and her heart. She was a hard worker and made the best food and you were expected to stay and eat! She was my kindred spirit, love and peace forever,grandaughter Diana

Words can't express...She was and is the LOVE of my life. My mother really...I had 23 years of living with her and feel so fortunate to have those memories and teachings of my gracious grandmother. I will see you soon in Heaven grandma!

Aunty was so loved because she gave love so easily to everyone. She leaves us having done everything the Lord asked of her and we are sure there's a very special place waiting in Heaven - one with lots of pretty yellow hats.
Forever with us.

When I think of Aunty Helen, the first word that comes to mind is SPUNKY, she always had a smile on her face and she was always batting her eyelashes at all the cute boys. She will be dearly missed.

I met “Maw” only once in her lifetime, but it was a meeting I wish I had done many many years ago. She was friendly, funny, and most of all...this lady had a great sense of humor. “Joe” will forever remember and miss his “Maw”.

My Mom was my best friend and teacher. I learned alot from Mom about life and myself. My heart is broken to say the least but I know I will see her again until then the memories flow with tears of joy and saddness. I LOVE YOU "MOODER", your Dooder

Grandma was the best and still is the best. She made the best apple pies and the best chocolate chip cookies. It will be hard not having her around but she will be missed every single day.
