Messages of Condolence

  1. Susie McLamb condolence:

    So sorry. My heart goes out to all.


  2. Laura Farrell condolence:

    My deepest sympathies to Helens family. She was a lovely lady with a huge heart. She was a great friend to my mom Judy Farrell. Her loss is felt throughout. She is fondly remembered by me for a few things. Other than always having my Mary Kay ready before I even called, we love her oyster cracker recipe!! It’s always a huge hit. But most of all her kindness and patience will always be remembered.
