I was sorry to hear of the passing of my old friend. We worked at the glass factory together years ago. Please accept my sympathy.
Mike and Mom,
There are several things I will always remember about Helen. Her extreme love of her family, cooking, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was such fun to be a part of all of these things on Sundays at her home. Her passion for the Steelers was just contagious! I will also remember how she would talk very proudly of her military service and so fondly of her customers.
Mike and Mom- Helen knew how much you both loved her- you were both always there for her. I loved Helen as a Grandmother- It was very sad to say goodbye to her- but at least we know she is in a better place.
