Elma G Wishard, November 27, 2005 I will always have fond memories of Helen. She was always treated me so special as a child and as an adult. Even though we will miss her it is nice to know that she is at peace and not hurting any more. Jill Ann McJunkins, November 22, 2005 So Sorry for your loss- Have loved Helen and Johnny for years.
