So sorry to hear of dear Helen's passing. She was a dear friend of my Mom Eileen, who was so happy to stay in touch after moving to Victoria. She asked me to let Jim and Helen's family know you are in her prayers at this difficult time. After a fun and silly time with Helen who was one of the counsellors at Camp Lamrecton when I was a girl, I will always remember her as a feisty, faith filled and supportive role model and friend. So long lovely Helen, I know you will be missed.
A woman of faith, joy, encouragement & Godly influence.

Our heart felt sympathy to you all.

I still can hear her laugh.

How many times the words "Oh Douglas" ring in your ears.

Always an encouraging word.

May God's presence engulf you all as you celebrate her life since she has moved HOME."

In Sympathy

At this time of sorrow, may your heart be comforted and your spirit renewed by the Lord's loving presence.

I am so thankful she and Jim came to Shoreline Baptist in Port Elgin. It was a joy to converse in her love of the Lord.

heartfelt condolences

Dear Jim and family

We were so sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. She was a great inspiration and a dedicated wife and mother. She lived her faith.

I am thankful that I was able to have a good conversation earlier in December with Helen when she came to our church for the Nativity walk. She was still so bright for her age.

I know you will all miss her

We regret that we cannot attend the funeral as we are in Mexico but will keep all of you in our prayers

Henny and Rob
