My heartfelt condolences for your and everyone’s loss. A visit by or to Aunt Helen was always a pleasure- especially when accompanied by her wonderful pecan pie. Or by something fresh from her garden. Of course, being with her was always pleasant as she was truly a ray of sunshine and warmth. She is part of the fond memories I have of visiting NC on my youth. She will be missed.
