    Always kind, thoughtful and caring. It is hard to think of this world without you in it, but you are beyond pain, surrounded by those beloveds who passed before you ~ their joy in being with you again must bring tears of welcoming and happiness. We will carry your earthly memories forever in our hearts. Love, sister Helen.
