My sympathy to you and your family Judithe. It was an honor/privilege to be a part your Mother's life these past few years.
Her smile never faltered. It was as genuine and given freely. My best to you.

May this lovely lady rest in eternal peace and love.

My cousin is age 103 and doing well. I feel very blessed.

Judithe, we are thinking about you and your family at this sad time. May God grant you comfort and peace in sharing precious memories together.

Judithe, it was truly my pleasure to have known both your mother and father. Helen was one of the sweetest women I have ever known. She was always positive and cheerful. I pray that she has a special place in God's sight.

Judithe and Linda, I am thinking of you as you mourn your mother’s passing. May God be with you to comfort you at this sad time.

Linda and Judithe, We are thankful to have known your mother, and to know that now she is with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, with your father, and so many others. We're praying for protection for you, Judithe, and for comfort and encouragement for both of you.

Although I only met Helen on a few occassions, she always had the most beautiful smile. She surely found peace in life with the love and support of her wonderful family. If possible, heaven has now become an even better place of eternal peace as she joins Joseph.
