Our hearts are hurting for you, Linda, John and families, in the loss of Helen. It seems that she suffered for so long that the release from that pain is her blessing. She was a special aunt to our family and as a sister- in- law to our mother, Bernadine. God give you strength at this time and pleasant times of reflection on the times you shared with her.
