Mary, Jessica, and Mark, I'm so sorry to hear of Helen's passing. I know this doesn't help much, and I know this is a time that will be double hard since it's not been that long since Harold passed away. Now they are together again so she can listen to his fiddle playing again for as long as they like. Stay strong for each other and the rest of the family, and may they both remain in your hearts, as they both will be in my thoughts and prayers. Miss you all, be strong in this time of trails.

Mark, Mary and families, we are sorry to hear about cousin Helen passing away, though fitting that she is together with Harold again. Fred and I always loved talking with her. Doesn’t feel like it was that long ago that she drove in here one day to visit while she was on one of her jaunts around the countryside to go by the farm. She was surely a great lady and will be missed.
