You were my mother, my best friend and by biggest supporter. You always let me know how proud you were of who I was as a person, a mother, a daughter and acknowledged all that I had accomplished in life. You have passed the torch and I accept. I promise to write the second chapter to your book to continue your legacy

  The minute I met you, Nana, you made me feel special. Your warmth, sweetness and caring embraced me immediately.  My life is richer for having known you, even as brief as it was.  I loved how you would sit with us with your glass of Chardonnay and talk about what had been going on in our lives. When i get frustrated by unruly students i will remember your kindness.

Helen was the Lady of ladies and it was an absolute pleasure to know her.We shopped for the best peaches and the berries she loved in the summer;laughed and shared stories.She exuded confidence and so you were more confident.The world was a better,happier place because of Helen!!

Our mother Helen was always an inspiration to me to never let age stop you from learning new things. Mom learned to land a small plane to be a better co pilot, sat on a grand jury twice. She will be missed forever

I remember Helen as a beautiful, kind and vibrant lady. She was always in a good mood and loved a good conversation. She liked to have a good time and had a great outlook on life and always with positive thoughts.
May her soul rest in peace and her spirit be around forever.
Helen will always be with us. With lots of Love, Golnar

Helen, the inspirational charmer with a fairy wand.  A fab neighbor who filled our life with laughter and joy.  Being a loving & loyal friend. Always ready to try that new, edgy way of doing something.  Creating beauty out of nothing.  Dear Helen rest in peace, you've earned every moment of the beautiful life you are now experiencing.
