  5. Grandma, Yia Yia, Helen Lujan was one of the strongest women I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Her heart was larger than the world. It has been a blessing to have her in my life and I know she will continue to look after all of us. May God Bless You All.

  6. Viewed your Video on the Network and was moved. Would like to share a verse from the Scriptures. “All the grave is astir, waiting for his coming.” Sincerley a distant relative.

  7. God Bless you Aunt Helen on your journey home to rest. My fondest rememberences of you were when I was a little girl sitting in your Kitchen at the Beach, watching you make pretty Flowers on a Wedding cake. You were so careful filling the paper cones with the wonderful iceing. I watched your hands as you made the flowers look so real. With me waiting patiently to get the used paper to eat what was left inside. Thank you Aunt Helen for giving me rice pudding whenever I came to visit, I still love it today, thank you for always being so gracious whenever I came to visit even though the visits were far between, you always had a smile for me.

  8. Aunt Helen would always remember my birthday and call. I wouldn’t always be home to take the call, but it was nice to come home to her message. I knew she would call every year. Since her brother Mike died on my birthday, she would bring up a memory of him. I’m going to miss her distinctive voice and flame red hair. May her memory be eternal.

Since her brother Mike (my dad) died on my birthday, she would bring up a fond memory of him and we would cry together. I’m going to miss her distinctive voice and flame red hair. May her memory be eternal.
