WORDS TO LIVE BY
“Do remember to forget, anger, worry and regret. Live while there is life to live, love while there is love to give.”
Helen was known as Mom to her children, Mime to her grandchildren and immediate family, and Toots to her wide circle of friends. Her home was her castle, and her family and friends meant everything to her.
Prayer from Mom’s Journal
“In God’s great garden of our lives, some rain must fall, but after that he sends the sun. To triumph over all, and so when sorrow comes to us, and tear drops cloud our day. She sends us strength to bear our load, and light to guide the way.”
