So sorry for the loss of such a wonderful person. I met Helen in the Finnish classes and would ride with her and Jack many times. Her smile and caring for everyone was always there. My heart goes out to the entire family deepest sympathy and God's comfort during this time.

Hi Rhett and family,
I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom. I have so many wonderful memories of her. She was always happy, kind, caring, and had a lot of patience with us as kids. She also had a great since of humor and since the time we were 11 years old she would always greet me at the door
(which could be several times a day) with the enduring nickname she had for me "Wilhelm." Please contact me with the details on the celebration life on Jan.11.
My sincere heartfelt deepest sympathy and prayers of comfort to you and your family.
