May you feel God’s peace in a very special way.

  • So sorry about your beautiful Mother. I know she was special to all of you. Jane, I am thinking of you and praying for your family. May she rest in peace.

  • Sympathy to the family. Her niece, Virginia, is my second cousin so knew Helen for tears.
    Her sister Mary was married to my cousin Kenneth. Helen was such a nice lady. Love, Erma.
