  1. Even though we didn’t get the “coin”, Helen taught us what the tradition of “breaking bread” was all about. May the sorrow of her passing be somewhat lessened by the many memories you have of her time here on earth.

  2. We want to send our condolences to Tom and all the family and we are extremely sorry to hear of Helen’s passing away. She is in our prayers together with her family. Neighbors, Jim & Betty McLachlan, at The Terraces, Rolling Hills Estates

  3. I’ve known Helen for over 25 years and I can say that she was a great lady. I can remember us sharing and how meaningful it was to me. Her favorite response would be “Tell me about it”. She was a very open-minded and always listened to what I had to say. Helen was honest, forthwright, kind, and giving. The one thing that I do know for sure is that Helen Stratos was a gift to those who knew her. God Bless Amega
