    We LOVE you Helen and always will. We will never forget how caring you were towards everyone. You were the best neighbor ever, my kids thought of you as their grandma and I know you loved them too. You were always there to hand out ice cream cones when they were small. Our lives will ache without you and we will never forget you!!!!!! Maybe you can bake some cookies or pies up in heaven. I know they wouldn’t mind. We miss you Helen – you were the best..

    Sandra, Gary and family,

    It is so difficult to say goodbye to someone we love and hold so dear and if it were up to us, we would always keep them here with us but God has reasons of His own. Right now, your arms are empty, and your hearts are filled with tears and grief, for those of you who shared your days with Helen are now finding those days too brief. Yet if only we could heaven see, you know she’s happy there. So trust her to God’s care and know that some day again you will hold her to your hearts when you reach Heaven’s shore.

    You have our love, our prayers and our deepest sympathies. Helen will be greatly missed by her family and friends. May beautiful memories sustain you and may God be with you to help and guide all of you through this difficult time and in the days to come. God bless you and know that we love all of you.

    When tomorrow starts without me
    And I’m not there to see,
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes
    All filled with tears for me
    I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
    The way you did today,
    While thinking of the many things,
    We didn’t get to say.

    I know how much you love me,
    As much as I love you,
    And each time that you think of me,
    I know you’ll miss me too

    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    Please try to understand,
    That an angel came and called my name,
    And took me by the hand,
    And said my place was ready,
    In heaven far above,
    And that I’d have to leave behind
    All those I dearly love.

    But as I turned to walk away,
    A tear fell from my eye
    For all my life, I’d always thought,
    I didn’t want to die.
    I had so much to live for,
    so much left yet to do.
    It seemed almost impossible,
    that I was leaving you.

    I thought of all the yesterdays,
    The good ones and the bad,
    I thought of all the love we shared,
    And all the fun we had.
    If I could relive yesterday,
    Just even for a while,
    I’d say good-bye and kiss you
    And maybe see you smile.

    But then I fully realized,
    That this could never be,
    For emptiness and memories,
    Would take the place of me.
    And when I thought of worldly things
    I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did,
    My heart was filled with sorrow.

    But when I walked through heaven’s gates,
    I felt so much at home.
    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    From His great golden throne,
    He said, “This is eternity,
    And all I’ve promised you.”
    Today your life on earth is past,
    But here life starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow,
    But today will always last,
    And since each day’s the same way
    There’s no longing for the past.

    You have been so faithful,
    So trusting and so true.
    Though there were times
    You did some things
    You knew you shouldn’t do.
    But you have been forgiven
    And now at last you’re free.
    So won’t you come and take my hand
    And share my life with me.

    So when tomorrow starts without me,
    Don’t think we’re far apart,
    For every time you think of me,
    I’m right here, in your heart.
