    Susan and Brett, Cheryl and I are truly sorry for your loss. Helen was such a good neighbor and kind soul! Helen treated Caleb and Cody like her own. We will forever be grateful to her and your dad for welcoming us and treating us like family. I hope you can find solace in knowing your mom and dad are reunited and smiling down on you.
