Bob, Troy, Robin and families, My heartfelt sympathy as I think of you all at this time. Helen was a sweet cousin and always a joy to be around. May sweet memories fill your hearts and minds as you walk through the days ahead. I have great memories of babysitting for you, Troy and Robin, and hearing your mom laugh as they would leave you in my care. She was a loveable person and had a gentle spirit. This is only "see you later", as we will walk those streets of gold with her one day! Sending my love and prayers to you all! Love, as your dad always calls me, Sam!
