    Tony Piccolin and I, Becky just were so grateful for Helen. She let us buy the family home back, guided us in gardening, and was a lifelong friend to Tony. She will now rest beside Ernie, in a plot just in front of Tony’s mom and dad. Fitting, because they were such good friends. And I will never forget her noodles. OMG – best comfort food ever.

    Sending our deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. Helen was one of my mother (Dorothy Brainards )best friends. Helen was always so thoughtful and always would check up on Mom after my Dad passed away. Now they can be together again in heaven. God Bless You All, praying God brings you peace.
