I'm so sorry to hear about Aunt Helen. I know you all will miss her a great deal. I was so young when we moved to Alabama that I only have one special memory of her - she would take me to lunch at Eat-n-Park and shopping on Saturdays with her friend Gerrie in that little Gremlin car of hers. I had such a good time! She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all! ❤
