Condolence & Memory Journal

My brother Mike just sent me this link. Didn't have any idea Helen had passed away. I will always remember her watching Melissa for me when I was desperate for a babysitter. I always remember my mom telling me how Helen loved me and would come to our side of the house and get me and take me with her to her side of the house that our families shared. Our families were so close at one time...I hope all your family members are doing well. Cyndy Harding Rogers
