"My daughter was a frequent visitor to Helen's nursing office back in 1976.She wasn't sick; just "a regular" who liked to run errands. When Helen discovered that I also was a nurse, she suggested I apply to the district as a substitute nurse. Thus started my 23 years in school nursing. She was a wonderful role model for me. Thank you Helen. Rest in peace - you earned it. Agnes McLaughlin"

"Prayers and Blessings to the family. We've been out of touch in recent years, but I have fond memories of many members from church, the active youth group we had for many years, and the Wissahickon & Fort Washington Fire Companies. Helen has earned her wings and I know is now at peace with Her Lord. May His Peace be with all of you. Mary Anne Fry, Calvary UMC."
