    We love you Aunt Helen!  You were so special in our family.  Your gentleness, kindness, warmth and love will never be forgotten.  And your sense of humor, with that beautiful laugh.  Your loss really leaves a hole in this family.  There are too many memories to count.  We miss you!

    Helen, you are and always will be in my memories. Most of my memories growing up include you and Uncle Clyde... Going on family vacations every year, it first vacation as kids was with you and Clyde, going for long walks with you making spaghetti monster cookies, playing uno and parchissi, passing gum in church (ssshhhh) spending every new years eve snacking and falling asleep, our (me and Renee) first taste for Chinese food and learning how to use chop sticks at yen ching on Sundays, got to watch Korean soap operas and try to figure out what the plot was, play dress up with your vintage clothes. The list goes on... But most of all just you, you and Uncle Clyde... Thanks for being the greatest god mother (and god father.. Uncle Clyde) set of twins could ever have.. we'll miss you both.. And i talk to you both because i know you're together again. Luv you lotsa, Danielle and Renee
