    When I heard about my sisters passing away it was very hard to get my head around it, I guess you expect your parents to leave you but when it’s a sibling it was hard. Growing up I was just a little brother probably a pain in the neck to an older sister but after getting married to Dottie we became much closer and Helen and Walt came to California on numerous occasions. When they left Helen always said ‘I love you honey’ and I always said it back. We will miss Helen’s smile and loving heart.
    With much love Butch (Harlow) and Dottie

    Gary and I were so sad to get this news. Helen was a special person to us as Walt still is. We had some fun times together. Enjoyed our trips to Florida. We liked seeing the next home Helen was decorating. That one wall paper she kept finding and using made me smile. Hopefully she is at peace.

    We will talk to you soon Walt. Love to the kids.

    Mu sister and I met your Mother at the Heritage. She was one of our favorite residents. Helen was a breath of fresh air and we always looked forward to visiting with her, when we were visiting our own Mother, Mary. Our heart goes out to her family, she will be missed.

    of course like your website but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will surely come back again.
