Although I did not have the privilege of seeing Aunt Helen in the last few years of her life, I still have many loving memories. She was my mother's twin and they were like two peas in a pod. I grew up with a rich closeness to Aunt Helen and my cousin Connie. These are memories I will hold dearly to my heart. Rest in peace Aunt Helen until we meet again in heaven. My sympathies to her daughters and other close family members,
