You have loss someone very special. A beautiful person, who touched the hearts of those she came in contact. This is a traumatic time for the family; however, as you come together during this time of bereavement, may you find comfort in each embrace you receive from family members and friends. Most importantly rely on the God of all comfort who promises to give you the strength needed to cope with your loss. (Matt. 11:28) And as time goes by, may cherished memories of your mother help bring you inner peace and make her seem still very close to you.

Aleck was never lost for words. When you met him it was as if you had known him forever. We go back in time to Magnolia United Methodist Church and our children grew up together; we were family. Helen, my thoughts and prayers are with you and all the family. Love you and GOD bless.

Mr. Winslow was a customer of mine for many years at Smith Optical Company. His outgoing personality and friendly manner would brighten any day. He will be missed.
