Hi Jerry and Alba. Our deepest condolences on the death of your Mom. So much of our lives are impacted by our Moms and Dads. We hope this time brings out lots of memories and stories; the ones told a million times already, and the ones almost forgotten.

My condolences to Jerry, Roselle and their families. Helen was my trusted friend through happy and sad times. She was always ready for a good laugh and a fast polka. Now she is dancing with many of our lifelong friends. Rest In Peace Helen…it was an honour to have shared 64 years of friendship with you.
