    Dear Family,

    I am sorry to hear of Helene’s passing. She was my neighbor for over 15 years. I could not have asked for better neighbors. Her son and her grandchildren brought her so much joy and she would speak of them often. Ed always tended the leaves and snow on the side of my house. Helene was happy to let him do what he wanted outside. She was always happy to see me and asked for my kids all the time as they got older and she saw them less.. I wish you all comfort in fond memories on Country Club Drive. I know I have them..
