Dear Susan & Gary,
Your mother exemplified everything I admire about aging! Her curious and adventuresome nature awed any who spoke with her. She maintained her spirit of independence to the point that when she relented to let another assist her in some small way, one felt like SHE was doing the favor.
Helen lived a strong life and I hope I can emulate her qualities when I grow up.
May you be comforted by the many good memories shared together
