  • I’m so sorry to hear about Helens passing. One could not ask for a better neighbor and friend. All those years living across the street from my parents on Summer Street. She was so helpful to my family when my parents passed. She really was the best. I enjoyed visiting her about 2 years ago, and thankful I had that time with her.
