I wish I was not writing this because that means Helen’s optimism and joy will no longer be gracing us. Just a fine, fine person. Unpretentious, genuine : we are better people for experiencing her approach to life. We keep her loved ones and her in our prayers.

My deepest sympathies and prayers go to all McCormack and Hyland families for your loss. Helen interviewed me and quickly became a trusted mentor and dear friend.  She carried charisma wherever she went and always took towards the bright side of things in life.  She was gracious, smart, and always looking out for others. Her compassion for life and people, loyalty for her friends, and love for her family will never be forgotten.

Please accept my most sincere condolences, to the entire McCormack and Hyland families. I met Helen through Starcom, where she is a trusted and very well liked teammate. She always knew the answer, had a smile on her face and never let the pressure of the pace shake her confidence. And really, she is just an incredibly lovely human who will be dearly missed by us all.
