Chuck (Dad) and siblings – so sorry to read of Helen’s passing. Remember all of you kids when you were little living on the McIlwee Road in Heuvelton. I used to go there and ride the horse Trixie. Knew your Mom and all of you well. It’s been a long time but fondness in my heart for all of you. So sorry for your loss. God Bless You all.

So sorry to hear about Helens passing, she was a dear friend and a loving mother who lived for her children and valued (family). I have known Helen, since she moved from Oklahoma, back to odgenburg briefly then to..W.Cathage..Ft.Drum..Watertown..New Castle, Del. and now resting in peace, which covered a period of over 25 years.

I have never seen another person that could stretch a dollar so far to provide for her children. My thoughts and prayers go out her family whom she loved and often talked about. She will be missed but truly remembered.

Goodbye Ole friend you’re finally back home.
