    I called Helen on her birthday a few days ago”¦did not know she had died in March.
    My Father and Helen worked together at ADG. When my Mother died, he looked her up. They had many good times together , and all of our family became very fond of Helen! She was so down to earth”¦we all missed her when she moved to California.
    A life well-lived”¦
