Dear Karen, Cheryl, Tim and Tom,
Sorry to learn of your moms passing. Helen told me for we were out of the state at the time. She, like my son, must have had the most glorious Christmas ever. In fact, heaven was probably abit more joyous because of her. She was a wonderful friend and I was blessed to be able to do her hair for many years.

May she now again watch over all of you from above.
