I will certainly miss my talks with Miss Helen and getting to know about her life. I enjoyed her company and our conversations! Her wit and humor made me smile and her wisdom gave me things to process for my own life. I am shocked and praying for comfort for the family during this time

The Women's Golf Association at Rumbling Bald Resort will miss Helen being a part of our ladies' golf league. Helen was a wonderful golfer, a dear friend and an encourager to all of us. Our thoughts are with her family whom she spoke of often.

Chuck, Greg & Sarah: I was so so sorry to learn of the passing of your sweet, sweet Mom today! I always loved her and that infectious smile of her and her witty sense of humor. Daddy & I bumped into her several months ago at Spindale Family. I know she will be truly missed by many by none more than her children and grandchildren! Please know the thoughts and prayers of our family are with you as navigate the difficult days, months, weeks and years ahead. Speaking from experience, there is NOTHING I've experience that quite compares to the loss of our Mothers! Hugs & loves to you all!
