In her earlier years, Helen enjoyed playing basketball in Alice, riding motorcycle with her husband, and throughout the years, kept her family well supplied with chocolate chip cookies. Thomas passed away in August of 2011.

    Fergus Falls MnMy husband, Sandy, and I were friends of Helen and Tom while attending MnDak CCC meetings. They were a loveable couple – gentle spirits and interested in others. Altho the years have gone by since I saw them, I have always remembered each as special people. They truly had love for each other. That is a special gift for you to cherish. God Bless

    We were sorry to hear about your Mom’s death. Bob is going to try to make it to the funeral. She was a nice lady. Mom and Dad enjoyed their friendship with your parents for many years. I always think of your Mom in my parents wedding picture.

    Our prayers are with you.
