  1. We are so sorry about your mom. We will keep you in our prayers, we know you will have a big empty spot in your life. Love, Norm & Judy

  2. I am extremely saddened by the passing of Aunt Helen. I had not spent a lot of time with her, or Uncle Jess, while an adult as I moved out of the area. My memories are fond and was able to see her again when my wife(Karol Kennedy) and I visited a couple of years ago. It is a sad time for all of us and I trust her spirit lives on in a much better place.

  3. Aunt Helen has always been a part of my life even though I moved away from Pueblo so many years ago. Recently I have been able to keep up with her by way of emails with Marilyn. I can remember visits before I moved away and my memories seem to revolve around food times. I know she will be missed and my prayers are already being given to God. May His peace and comfort be everything needed to go down the road. My love goes out to all of you who can make it to gather together tomorrow. Remember all the wonderful things she has taught us in times past and know I am doing the same thing.
