    I'm so sorry to hear of Helen's passing. I have fond memories of her and always enjoyed the shortbread cookies she gave me every year for Christmas. I'm hoping she found Mom (Frances Hunter) in heaven and the two of them are living it up. They were an inseparable pair. Thinking of you all. Patricia Johnston

    Many many years ago Helen was my babysitter. I have so many memories of her. She's always stayed with me in my thought. My favourite memory would be cucumbers and vinegar. Because of my time there we'd often be around at supper and she'd have a plate of sliced cucumbers soaking in vinegar on the table. To this day anytime I do the same ( it's delicious) I think of her. She was so lovely and kind. I wish I could have seen her. Love to all the family. ❤️❤️❤️
