I didn't know your Mom personally but as a friend of Helen's, I have heard her speak of Marion and her family many times. My sympathy to your family and to Helen who will sadly miss her beloved sister. May the many beautiful memories you share and the caring of family and friends help to carry you through these sad days. Thinking of you.

Sending thoughts to Arthur, Carol, Richard, Cathy and Andrew. Your mom has a special spot in my heart. She was mom"s best friend and do not know what she would have done without her. We all had such great times together. Will never forget the birthdays, Woodstoock Fair, strawberry picking, great times in her kitchen and in the later years the afternoon tea parties with her, mom and Janet. Love her dearly. Sending condolences.
