|Let the memory of Helen be with us forever|
"In our thoughts every day. Cheryl and I miss you and share memories all the time. We had dinner at the Westerville Grill on your birthday and sat at the table in the front corner where we always sat and watched traffic go past. Even had a yellow car parked in front which would prompt you to say "yuck, yuck "."
"Love you grandma!"
"Finally, made it to Gulf Islands National Seashore, Mom! You praised your visit there so much I tried twice to go but hurricanes prevented a visit until last summer. It is a truly amazing place but it was a trip of highs and lows for me...couldn't stop thinking of you. Love, Carol"
"I miss you mom."
"Grandma, think about you so often. I have seen more birds living in Connecticut than anyplace I've lived. I think of you each time I see a new one. Thinking of you today on your birthday and missing you so much."
"Just smiled remembering when grandma used to put corn silk in her armpits to make us laugh. I miss you grandma!!!"
"Thinking of you, especially today, Mom. Because of you I know the best way to eat Angel Food Cake!"
"Missing you Grandma. Eating chicken and noodles right now and thinking of you, but wishing the noodles were yours - they were the best ever."
"I miss you mom."
""I can not explain the impact that Grandma has had on my life. Her smile and laugh are imprinted in my memory. She had a way about her that made you feel loved when the events of your day might be making you feel otherwise. Spending the night at Grandma and grandpas was a treat! Marbles on the carpet, swinging in the backyard swing, playing horse shoes and walking up and down Mary Ave. So many memories. She loved each of us with such intensity. My childhood would not have been half as wonderful with out her in it. I too, will miss her forever.""
"Grandma always knew how to make sure I had fun as a child. Board games, scaring us in the graveyard playing redrum, sticking corn silk in her arm pits, and sugary cereal! As a grown up I loved going on nature walks with her and going on buggy rides to visit family. When I was at school at O.S.U. I always checked the back door when I got home because there was frequently a bag hanging there with food, garage sale finds, coupons or a twenty. I loved her deeply and will miss her always."
