I worked with Helen in the mid 80’s at Berkey film processing on Alexandria, Virginia. She was a good manager. I will miss her smile and her voice. She’s in heaven looking down on us.

To Ed, Debbie,Janice. Helen will be missed by all, especially by David and myself. She was like a mother to me. She put up a hard fight through out the years with her health problems. But find comfort in knowing she is in a better place now and with other love ones in Heaven. From David and Judy

Edgar; I was very shocked to learn about your loss of Helen. You and she have been a very special couple over the years. It is unfortunate that Betty and I didn't experience more of our lives together with you. It always seemed one of us was on the go. Although we didn't get to share more time with each other through the years, I suppose that is a part of life. Perhaps you can share some time traveling in the near future, and please don't pass us by. We are now learning how short life is. For whatever reason, I remember you as the first significant person in my life from when we lived on 20th Street. A long time ago. May God Bless Helen, and may God Bless You. Your cousin, and friend, Bill
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

So sorry for your loss. I met Ms Helen a few time when I was with my sister Sherry to take care of Ms Wilda. She seemed like a very very nice lady. Ed was a very kind man too. Prayers for his loss. God heals every heart.

Bless you Helen. Ed, and family, I also worked with Helen at Berkey in Alexandria, I worked as a billing supervisor, she was my manager. Always was a special person. I am so sorry for your loss. But I am sure she still has that same smile and is looking down on all of you. I have missed her over the years after the years at Berkeley, we always exchanged Christmas cards, wished I had made some calls over the years just to chat. You all have my deepest sympathy. Take care and may the Lord bless you all.
