    Dear Uncle Ted, Sharon, Theodore, Bernadette, David and Family… I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Helen. I speak to you today with a heavy and a sad heart. Please know I am thinking and praying for you during this difficult time. May God and all your dear memories comfort you in the days ahead. Such happy memories I have of Aunt Helen. I remember her always happy and smiling. I remember her spunky, loving and generous heart. I have wonderful memories of all your family and I know you loved her very much, as she did you. May the memories and that love surround your family like a blanket and hold you close until the pain is no more.. Fondly and with love, Denise
