    Aunt Helen: I have many fond memories as a child of spending time at your cabin. Uncle Ray was always up to something to get us going! I remember so vividly the chipmunks coming right up to us and eating out of our hands. It was a beautiful place! And then the time at my graduation party in Conroy when he was really teaching Mom how to drink! I know Grandma and Grandpa will be pleased to have Uncle Ray with them – playing cards again and enjoying those beverages. I love you so much and am sorry. Uncle Ray will definitely be missed. He’s left a lot of wonderful memories! Thinking of you and praying for you! Love, Tammy

    I was a friend of Helen’s from FirstBank. I tried to find her address online to send her pictures of my babies last year and I found out she had passed away. I have no way to get in contact with your family but I stumbled upon this and thought I would leave my condolences. Helen was the sweetest most kind hearted woman. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for her. She was a great friend. She spoke so fondly about Ray. You could tell how much she loved him and missed him. Hopefully they have found each other in heaven.
