As a 16 yr old Aunt Helen was with my Mother in Jul 1935 when I was born. She was the first to stroll me in a carriage and I have felt a close love of her all my life. My summers spent in Walters were memories for a lifetime. God blessed her with long life here and He has provided her that glorious Golden Daybreak and Eternal perfection we who know Him as Savior are granted By Grace.
Love to her family, Billy

I first met Mrs. Helen when she was in the hospital, as we talked we learned we lived 2 streets over and I would stop and chat with her from time to time. She was such a great person and I am glad I got to meet her. May she rest in peace and Heaven gained a great angel. I am very sorry to hear of her passing.
