Walter (Sr. and Jr): Our heartfelt condolences for the loss of a truly amazing, kind, loving and blessed wife, mother, friend and confidant. I have so many fond memories of years spent contemplating and living life from the kitchen table on Lake Street and these shall forever remain. Helen was a second mother to me, and, I surmise, to many others. Her pride in, and love for, both of you and her grandchildren knew no bounds. I will miss her terribly but know that she will rest in God's loving embrace in eternal peace.
