Clark, I am so very sorry to learn of Helen's death. She was always such a beautiful lady, from the time you lived a couple of doors from us in 1950 in Freeport, through the years seeing you both at the Freeport Alumni Banquets and right up until I saw you both last summer. My deepest sympathy.

Helen was a quiet, personable friend who always had a great smile for everyone. She will be missed in our congregation, but never forgotten as she was faithful to our Lord. Blessiings to all her family...
