    Sara, Torry, Martha, Marty and all the kids,
    Sending my love and prayers. Helen was a very special woman. Her laugh was contagious. She loved being with all of you. Joy!
    I’ve been humming the classic Mercy Me song, “I can only Imagine” and wondering about your Mom’s experience of meeting the Lord.
    Love and peace,

    Dear Sara and families — so sorry to read of Helen’s passing. We had the pleasure of meeting her through a mutual friend, Ruthie Taylor. Thus resulting in Helen becoming our tenant. Such a nice lady, and we have had the pleasure of chatting with her on many occassions since her move from the apartment. Sympathy, Patty and Gary Beatty — Beatty Rentals
