To all my wonderful cousins; sons and daughters of my dear Uncle Dutch and Aunt Helen., Your Mom was a beautiful and kind woman. Every time I think of her, I see her in your kitchen on Terra Nova Road, in the kitchen with her apron on, working away. She raised all of you to be beautiful, kind people like she was. Hold onto your wonderful memories of her! I’m praying for you all. I know just how very difficult the days ahead will be, but I pray God will wrap you in His arms and give you the strength you need to get through. All my love to you all, Bill, Martha Rae, Wilf,, Stephen and Elizabeth, and your families.. Love and Hugs, Charlene, Vic Jr., and Albert

So sorry to hear of Aunt Helens passing, I have so many wonderful memories of our visits when we went with Mom!! Myself and Ted spent many weekends with both of them, shopping at the Avalon Mall, Oh My!! She was such a beautiful lady!!

So very sorry to hear of Aunt Helen’s passing. She was a a wonderful woman with a heart of gold and always a welcoming hug and chuckle for me. She opened her doors to welcome us always with a cup of tea, a place to sleep leaving us with happy childhood memories of great times with our cousins and Aunt and Uncle. Go rest high on that mountain Aunt Helen – with the Father and the Son. Much love to all of my cousins , spouse and children – and praying that God will surround you with His peace. During this time. – Joy (Harbin) Plourde
