Happy Birthday Auntie. I can only imagine how it feels when Time no longer matters or is acknowledged. To simply “be” must be heavenly! You are loved and missed. Hug everyone there for us.

FIVE years! It seems you've been gone a long time and yet not long at all. I do know that I miss you and cherish memories of our times together. This year I'm in Fayetteville NC where I spent Christmas and New Year's with Val and my great-grands. Lots of new memories in these 5 years. DO miss your faithful prayers for each of us.

Happy heavenly birthday, Auntie. #93 Are you having Angel's Food cake today? You have been in my thoughts frequently of late. In fact, the picture currently on my FB page is of you and I at the top of the arch in St. Louis. That was a great time together. You left an amazing legacy! Love and miss you.

Not many flowers blooming today. The world you loved is blanketed in snow and ice. FOUR years this morning you slipped the bonds of earth and of the body that limited your last days. You are still missed greatly here. Your love lives on in my heart.

Happy 92nd birthday, Auntie. I know I'm a day late in posting. I'm going to lay the responsibility for that on traveling and time changes. Mary Lou and I were in Mountain Home on Monday. This is such a beautiful season in the Ozarks...with your favorite Redbud and French Pear trees blooming everywhere. The Crape Myrtle that formed the fence between your house and the neighbors is not yet blooming so there is more beauty ahead. As always, sending you love~ We miss you here.

Dear Auntie, thinking of you today on your birthday and once again thanking God for your life and the ongoing influence it has over so many of your family and friends.

It's difficult to believe you've been gone from this earth for 3 years. Your physical presence and your audible prayers for us individually are greatly missed, but I'm sure you're still following each of us and sending love. I'm leaving a flower today. Wish it could be one of the dogwood blossoms that will soon be blooming in your beloved Ozarks.

March 24. Auntie Helene's birthday. Hard to believe she's already been in glory for 2 years. Thanking You Lord for her life and influence on and prayers for this family and her love for You and desire to reach the lost world. She will always live in my heart as a great lady and example of the impact an aunt can have in the life of her family.

Happy Birthday, Auntie. Know you are having an awesome celebration in heaven. The flower icon is to remind you of the beautiful roses in my garden that I'd love to share with you today...but God probably has an ample supply for you to enjoy. Thank you for all your love and prayers Miss you enormously.

Helene will be missed. She was an influential volunteer. After volunteering at Truth Chasers Club, she got fired up about volunteering here and went back home and got others to join her in volunteering. We thank the Lord for loving God and serving others.

Helene helped send bible lessons to children all over the nation through the CEF Truth Chasers Club. She helped us reach many children of prisoners. My sympathy goes to the family at this time of loss. May God comfort you as He now holds her in his arms.

Helene Pilz loves her Lord, Jesus Christ. She showed hospitality to friends in the faith. She acted on Hebrews 10:24 "and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds," NASB. She brought her church group to grade Bible lessons at the CEF Truth Chasers Club in MO and her influence added another church to our volunteer group. She is receiving a rich welcome in heaven.

Helene was my first friend when I moved to Mountain Home 9 years ago, She was kind, funny, and very knowledgable. I will certainly miss her, but know she is a whole body once again and smiling as she climbs those stairs. I thank her for all of the knowledge of Christianity, the Bible and what is most important in life. In my heart always.

Just thinking of her beautiful prayers...i remember clearly, how intimate her prayers were. It was comforting to listen, even as a child & young adult. Her walk with the Lord touched my life! Certianly there was rejoicing in Heaven this morning! Our prayers for you & your family Ruthi

I knew "Auntie" Helene the way she looks in the picture above-- Long before she moved to Arkansas, I knew her not only through family, but through Forest Home Women's Auxillary..so many years ago! She was a lovely, godly woman. I kept up with her through Kathy Jones, her niece and my sister-in-love. She is celebrating before the throne of Jesus with my dear mother, another Helen! Praises

Auntie Helene was a very special part of my childhood. Always warm and loving. I can hear her singing in my heart. Heaven came down and glory filled my soul! Looking forward to a great reunion and song fest in heaven. #16. He lives...and so does she!

The header photo was chosen to represent her beloved Mountain Home Arkansas. She so enjoyed the colors of the seasons...from the dogwood in spring to the fall leaves.
