I am so very sorry to hear about your loss.  I only wished I would have known sooner.  I was just make aware this morning.  I was a co-worker and friend of Helen's for a number of years, before her injury to her knee.  She will be missed by many.  Your family are my thoughts and prayers.  RIP Helen

My simplicity to the family, Helen and I worked together at Trinity for years and we became closer since we were both from San Antonio. She loved her husband and her step kids and she adored her grandkids. We missed her when she didn’t return to work after getting hurt. I will miss her dearly. Rest In Peace Helen.
