  1. John, Sorry to read in the paper that Helen passed away. Barbara Kuhns told me she talked to Helen after Bradley Smartt’s accident. Helen was Debbie’s third grade teacher and a great colleague for several years at McClave Elementary School. Almost 60 years of marriage is quite a record! May God be with you and we want you to know we are thinking of both of you.

  2. John

    We are sorry for your loss. You were such good neighbors. Take care and stop in to say hello.
    Respectfully Dan and Diane Modlin

  3. Dear John: Sorry about the loss of your wife, Helen. Having just been through the same experience in February, I know what you will be going through and call on me at any time to talk or get together. Will always remember our visits with you, Helen, and my wife as we met and ate at Furr’s at the same time on many occasions. I will be thinking of you and praying for your healing as time passes. Your friend and fellow educator, Max Brigeman.

  4. John, you and Helen shared such a giving and blessed life! Helen was such a gifted teacher and care-giver to Lenna and anyone else around that needed something! Your marriage and her life was such a “gift” to all those who knew her! Condolences on your loss and blessings to keep those memories afresh! Love, Bobbi & Ron

  5. Dear Mr. Snider, Joan, and Lenna, I will treasure forever the time I spent with your family last year. Mrs. Snider gave me the bird seed bag from Joan’s wedding, which I look at every day, and think of you all. Mrs. Snider was a wonderful, caring, loving woman. I am so sorry for your loss.

  6. Dear Joan: Please accept my most sincere sympathies on the loss of your mother. My heart goes out to you, your father, and your sister at this most difficult of times.

  7. John and girls, I am so sorry about your loss. Helen was my good teacher friend at McClave. We are at our cabin in Westcliffe and won’t be able to make it to the service. Our condolences to your family. Barb and Ted Kuhns

  8. John, you and Helen shared a wonderful life together. A life full of all of those experiences and challenges and love that are a part of a life well lived Partners through it all. God bless you and the family. You are in my prayers.
