    Many wonderful memories of Uncle Wayne, Aunt Helen and kids visits to Indiana. Aunt Helen always demonstrated an independent nature full of creative curiosity and talents. I know you all will miss her, but I feel sure Uncle “Dedi” welcomed her home with open arms. Love to you all

    Aunt Helen is at home with God, her beloved husband, grandson, sisters, and parents. She and Uncle Wayne were an example of true love. They were the parents of a beautiful family. She was an amazing mother, and took care of them with love. I love them all so very much. It’s difficult to lose your mother, but I’m sure that they take comfort knowing that they did all that they could do for her, just as she took care of them. It makes me so sad that I’ve lost my last beautiful Aunt. I love you all very much, and my heart is with you. Your loving cousin, Brenda
