Carol and family,

We were very sorry to hear of Gramma Helen’s passing. She was a great lady and has certainly passed that quality on to you, Lorrie and the rest of the granddaughters. Please accept our deepest sympathies and pass them on to the rest of the family. We will keep you and the family in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers are with all the family. I worked at Bobbie Brooks 1972-77 and had the pleasure of knowing Helen! She was the nicest, most understanding supervisor there.
