Dear Helen, you and Tim will forever be in my heart. I can see clearly back to those days when we had our adventures, and so much fun. Those times will never be forgotten. I am so grateful that I was able to play Trivial Pursuit via text with you just days before you left us. We had so much fun back in the day with our game nights and in retrospect, it felt like a fitting good-bye. Love you both.

Not a condolence, really more of a footnote. Helen and Tim dated in high school and we’re together since then. They were the proverbial high school sweethearts. Love you Helen. Love you Tim.

The group Disturbed has a great song about Hold onto the memories. The lyrics say The time will come when all of us say goodbye, feeling that aching in your heart, leaving you broken up inside, but we are never really gone, as long as we hold onto the memories. The memories of our times together are long and rich, camping, back yard bbq’s, Saturday night Pictionary or trivia pursuit, weddings, 4th of July, dinners at Greek Travernia, baby showers. So many memories, so you aren’t really gone as long as we can hold on to the memories, hold onto every moment to keep them. Beautiful memories of Timmy, Helen and Van. Thank you for being part of our lives. Secondly, thank you George and Kathy for being her support during her loss of Tim, cancer treatments and finally holding Helens hand as she left this world. Beautiful souls and friends to the end.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Helen, I'm so sorry about your passing and at such a horrible time in our world's history. I can't imagine your pain both physically and emotionally. The only thing that eased our pain and lifted our spirits was to witness the beautiful friendship shown to you by Kathy and George. Friends like that are few and far between. You will be greatly missed and thought of frequently. Give Timmy a hug for me. I love you both. Angels sleep on your pillow, Barbi
