Dear Barb, Fred & family – May you find comfort in knowing that so many people care about you. Your mom was a special lady. During this time…. There will be hugs. There will be tears. There will be people who don’t know what to say And some who can still make you laugh There will be pictures and keepsakes. Memories and stories – some you’ve never heard And some you could never hear enough There will be sorrow & celebration But most of all, there will be love The kind that never ends You are in my prayers Kathy

When we first met your smiling, friendly Mom at The Heritage we quickly grew to love her positive attitude and her mission to make others laugh. Our lives are richer from knowing her. We will remember the many times we shared a meal with her and her continuous interest in other people, the pride she had for her family and her pleasant personality creating a joyful attitude with those around her. May you feel God's loving arms around you as you grieve Helen's physical passing from this earth to her heavenly home. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.

Dear Fred, You always light up when you speak of your mother, and for years it has been very apparent, even though we never met her, that Helen Strobl was a very unique and amazing lady. Her zest for life, love and devotion to her family, delight over her friendships, and the integrity with which she lived her life and served others were consistent in all the wonderful discussions you shared with us about her. You and your family were truly blessed to have shared so many wonderful experiences together, and now to have all those treasured memories. As you adjust to this “temporary separation” from your beloved mother and grandmother, our sympathy is with you and your family. Praise God for His eternal promises through Christ Our Lord!

Dear Barb & Chuck, We send along our deepest sympathies for the loss of Barb's mother. What a beautiful life she led. Her obituary reads like that of the perfect wife, mother and grandmother. It is a terrific tribute to a wonderful life. We are sorry to read of her passing and can sense that she touched the lives of many. We will keep her and your family in our prayers.

To Helen's family and loved ones, As neighbors of Helen's son, Fred, we have heard many wonderful and loving things about her. One message that was always conveyed was how much love she had for her family and how much she loved getting together and spending time with them. One of the true blessings in life is the love, support and guidance of a mother. A mother's loss is difficult at any age and there are no words to describe what you are feeling. Hopefully the many cherished memories of times spent with your mother will give you some comfort. We will pray for your family during this difficult time and, Fred, if there is anything you should ever need, your neighbors are just a phone call away. Love and God's peace be with you,
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

We send our deepest sympathies. Helen was a blessing to our church family here at Emmanuel United Methodist Church, and even this morning as our visitation ministries team met, having just heard of Helen's death, we shared our memories of visiting with her and the joy she brought us. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Helen was always a bright spot in my day at work. She always had such a positive outlook on everything, and enjoyed her family so much. She made me smile and look at the good things in life. She told me to smile and be happy when she is gone, knowing she would be in a good place. I'll never forget her.
