I graduated from high school with Helen and Gary. So sorry to hear this. I got to see them at our last class reunion last fall. I'm so glad they were able to make it. She will be missed for sure. Hugs and prayers for Gary and the rest of the family.
I went to college- NMU- with Helen. I just found her obituary today. She always sent such lovely Christmas letters . . . . throughout the years. She was a warm, kind, good woman. My condolences to her family.
