I was Helen's assistant for over three years, and I loved and admired her greatly. Many people would grow bitter and depressed as they lost their vision and hearing, as she did. But she rarely let those get her down. "That's life," she'd say with a shrug and her beautiful smile.
She was unfailingly generous, and would give you the shirt off her back, if you asked. I once admired a sweater she wore, but commented that the color was bad for me. "I have another one in my dresser. Do you want it? I wore it yesterday, but I can wash it." (I turned her down.)

Though not in touch as often as we'd like, I was always glad to hear of my "Dad's side of the family" from Aunt Helen. Her Christmas card letters kept us up to date with her latest choral trip, the busy lives of my cousins, Martha, Anne and Geoff and their respective families, her church and music teaching and various other activities. She was always upbeat and positive when we talked. I will remember her warm smile.
