Dear family of Helen Blazis, I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in God's promise to swalllow up death forever.
Junie was my first best friend, taught me how to play cards, how to roller skate backward. I think of her and Patty often, look at the picture of their house and mine on W. Euclid, good time abound in those days of yore.
