    Capen School, Dedham Junior High School and Dedham High School memories have been on my mind since hearing the news of your passing. On behalf of all of your friends and DHS Class of ‘74 classmates, you will be missed. Another classmate gone too soon. Rest In Peace, Helen.

    So sorry for your loss. I’ll always have fond memories of Helen growing up on Paul Street and camping down the Cape.
