  1. Dear Terry, Don, and Families,

    We were very sorry to read of Helen’s passing. She was a good neighbor, always there to lend a hand and wave, or just visit a bit. I learned a lot from her. I remember her mowing the lawn, tending her garden, whistling, showing pictures of her and Harold’s latest trip. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Rita, John, and Family

  2. Dear Newton Family,Your Mother will be missed, and I am so sorry for your loss. We played many a golf game together at City Park.She was a great person and I will miss her. Sincerely, Bettie Gerringer

  3. Dear Don and Terry, Please accept my thoughts and prayers for you and your families. I have such good memories of growing up on Alexander. I will never forget your mom whistling to call you both in. We had some good times. Hope you and your kids are well. Sincerely, Marsha (Nance) Phelps

  4. Dear Don and Terry and families:

    I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. We’ve known each other since we were little kids, and I feel like we all grew up together. Then your parents and my family became neighbors when we moved to Alexander Cr. Helen was a good neighbor and I enjoyed talking with her when I would walk around Alexander. My thoughts are with you all.
