Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Aunt Helene, thank you for a lifetime of wonderful memories from my childhood to old age! Thanks for all the pastry, political arguments, fashion advice and trips to the Goldenrod in York Beach. We all remember you rescuing my sister from the duck pond in the Boston Public Garden. You will be dearly missed and loved forever.

It was always a treat to visit Helene (and Rita when she lived with her), either with my mom Frances or with my "cousin" Cecelia when she was up for a visit. The house would shake with loud bursts of laughter and outrageous stories from their growing up days. I have so many great memories of Helene, Rita and my mother all teasing each other and revealing old secrets and embarrassing stories. How come they always looked so glamorous in those old photos!!? I'll always treasure Helene for her backbone, sense of humor and for how kindly she spoke of my dad. Thanks Helene for a lifetime of love, kindness and fun!
