|Let the memory of Helen be with us forever|
"They say time heals all wounds but the one of losing Mom will never heal, I have only learned to live with it! She shared with me on many occasions her struggles of losing Grandma and Grandpa and now I understand completely the void and emptiness that she spoke of!! I can only imagine the experiences she is having, the awesome glory her eyes sees as she looks upon our Lord, our God and all the heavenly wonders he created! I know she is full of the peace she was longing for here on earth. I love you Mom, you were such a huge part of my life...I listen often to "our" song and still keep wondering how do I learn to live without you?"
"Nearing the 3rd anniversary of your soul rising to the heaven's above, to be at peace our father who thow art be in heaven. And our family in heaven. I miss you everyday in the physical world. However, I feel you guiding me as well teaching me in the spatial world. I love and miss you every day. Thank you,for being you."
"My best friend. Missed always. Love you. -Marilyn Amburn"
"My second mom will always be an impact on my life.
We celebrated your birthday as the filling between Richard's and my birthdays and you were always that important in ours and many lives. Happy Birthday Helen!"
"Two years ago today Heaven's doors opened and welcomed home a great and true angel, my Mom! Thank you Lord for blessing me with the most selfless person I have ever meant who loved her children, family and life more than herself! Mom stood for so much but never by words but with her everyday actions of love! Although the grief of losing her is still so hard to bare, revisiting ALL the memories she and I created together over the years helps ease the pain! I still listen to her voicemails (the ones not erased) and imagine her and I having one of our many daily conversations! This will have to due until I can see her again. I feel the best tribute to her is not in words but living the life she gave me exemplifying her and honoring HER wishes!!
I love you Mom...rest in peace!! I know how you longed for the peace you must be experiencing now but I bet it is more glorious than you ever imagined!! Thank you for being you, all the great times, the tears and laughter we shared, being my best friend, loving me but most of ALL, God blessing me with YOU as my Mom!!!"
"Happy Birthday Mom,
You have been on my mind all day. As I would always do something for you on this day. As you were very important to me. You were the best Mother, and my best friend. Happy 80th in heaven. As it is where your soul is suppose be as your work here on earth was done. But that does not make missing any easier. Happy Birthday MOM!!!!!"
"Happy Birthday Mom!! I hope you are celebrating your birthday with all your heavenly angels and know I am here celebrating "YOU"! I know there will be a time when we will celebrate everything together again and what a glorious day of celebration it will be but until then I lift my glass and my heart to you....HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM YOU WERE THE BEST MOM AND FRIEND I EVER HAD...LOVE TO YOU FOREVER!!!"
"Helen you were one of the best friends ever. I think of you so often and will miss you always. love you."
"Today in history the Titanic sank as well as President Abraham Lincoln died. So besides being with the Lord above. You left this world on a very famous date in history as this date will ever be ingrained in your family and friends.
Thank you MOM"
"Hard to believe it has been one year ago today the good lord took his angel home. You are truly missed but in a better place.
Love you always and will never stop missing you.
"Hard to believe it has been 6 months today you went to Heaven.
You are so missed and loved but knowing that one day we will be together again."
"Happy Birthday Mom - to the brightest light my life ever knew.......You are so deeply missed. I pray you know how much we love you - FOREVER - Debbie"

"Happy Birthday Mom!! I love and miss you beyond words! You were and still are the BEST friend a daughter could have ever asked for!"
"It has been 3 month's and as time goe's by and thing's have change. I know you were the glue of our family. The Mother the Friend the one who did not pass judgement and held it all together. You were the doer and the maker of our family. You are and were our ROCK and now you are our ANGEL I love you forever."
"Oh Nana...how much I miss you!!"
"I am missing you so as things are happening in my life and I have you not to share with as you were my best friend and shared all events with but I know you are above watching out for me but that does not fill the void in my heart. I love you Mom"
"Helen, love you and miss you so much. Think about you everyday. See you down the road, save me a good spot. Love Marilyn."
"Back in 2002 for a Mother's Day gift I took Mom on a surprise trip to New York City with ALL expenses paid. I remember how she flew into Nashville and spent the night then the next day we caught a plane to the Big City. We stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel and had 6 glorious days and 5 magical nights in New York. While we were there we did as much as possible...we had a spa day, a sightseeing day, a shopping day, I rented a car, convertible of course, put the top down, drove North and took her to upstate New York and we visited West Point, we had a theater day and I remember we closed up the trip with eating at the Tavern on the Green. She said how she had wanted to visit/eat at the Tavern on the Green ever since she had heard of it. The neat thing was it was about to close for business at that time and I was so thrilled we were able to make it there before they had. She said it was always on her bucket list.
Although this Mother's Day is a far cry from that year(no pun intended) I will cherish those memories forever.....Happy Mother's Day, Mom... I Love and miss you so much!!!"
This song is for you mom....Happy Mother's Day!!
Will love you always and forever...
You are never far from my mind and always in my heart
I do have great comfort knowing you are in God's hands now and I know the peace you were seeking you now have with Him!!!"
"Helen was my baby sister and we always had so much fun together. I especially remember all the good times we had playing cards. I miss her dearly and know she is happy where she is now."
"Mom, looking at pictures today for you, I miss you so much!! Rest in Peace!!! I will see you on the other side some day just know you are in my heart and soul!!!"
"Jesus, Mary and Joseph!!"
"Happy Easter Mom"
"Aunt Helen was one of the kindest and most loving person I have ever had the privilege of knowing. She has always held a place in my heart and always will. I have very fond memories of the times we shared as a family at holiday events on 98th street in Belleville. My aunts and uncles were always a big part of my life as a child and Aunt Helen was always right at the top. I am privileged to have known her and loved her. I'll miss you.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Bell family.
"Helen was truly one of the most wonderful people I have ever known and a true blessing from our Lord. I am so very grateful that God gave me the opportunity to know her and spend some very enjoyable times with her. I will miss her very much and pray that God will wrap his loving arms around all of her loved ones and comfort them throughout this time."
"I had the pleasure of knowing Helen through her daughter and my dear friend, Debbie. She was a wonderful combination of elegance, common sense, love and sly wit. I will miss her.
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed." Psalm 34:18"
"May the God of hope fill you all with Peace and Joy as you trust in him knowing Helen is now spreading her wings with our Heavenly father looking down giving hope to each one of you with a smile on her face knowing how proud she is of all of you, as she loved you all so dearly.
God bless always, Tami"
"To a woman who was everything to so many, Our Mother. She knew how to love and to be an anchor for our family and extended family. Mom taught us so much, about grace, loyalty and most of all, LOVE. She had such a wonderful sense of humor too.
I miss you so very, very much MOM.....and my life is so empty without you. I have been blessed beyond worth to have been able to call you my Mother, my Friend and companion for all these years. I will love your forever - your daughter - Debbie"
"In loving memory of a 'Mom' that wasn't mine, but will always remain in my heart. The sharing, the laughter, the dinners together and the special quiet times in meaningful conversations. I'll truly miss you Dear Helen."
"Words can not express the feeling of loss in my heart, but I do know my Mom is at peace now! You will forever be in my heart and soul, you give me strength! I love you Mom!!!!!!!!!"
"I will miss my baby sister and my sympathies to the Bell children."
"I memory of Mom I will light a candle for you everyday as you will always be the lite in my Life"
