Dear Gary, Susan and spouses, grandchildren, great grandchildren. Aunt Helen was a beautiful lady. I say lady because she always looked so pretty and had an aire of dignity about her. As a young girl I admired her and I have many memories of her wonderful cooking and kindness. Please accept our deepest condolences. Donna (McKean) and David Charriere
