  1. I had the pleasure of chatting with Helen on numerous ocassions and it saddens me to hear of her passing. Our agency took care of her auto and home insurance since 1976. Please feel free to call me at 310 316 0678. My sympathy to her family and friends.

  2. Helen, I havent seen you in a while since you stopped coming to the market because you were afraid of me getting me in trouble with the boss. We had alot of laughs together. I will always remember you and miss you dearly. My Prayers to your friends and family. (Hi Rita !)

  3. Helen’s husband Jimmy was my grandfather’s cousin. I wish that I would have had the opportunity to meet her.
