Our dear dear friend HelenL passed away yesterday.

This leaves a mighty big hole. She was one of a kind - sweet, sage, spirited and she never complained.

My prayers go out for her husband and three children.

And to all of her many friends, near and far.

She was one of my first friends here, and had been a good friend of Annie. She was truly a sweetheart and will be very greatly missed and forever loved.

Helen, I love you and I will miss you so much. I was looking through some of our conversations here and couldn't help but laugh and cry at the same time. You are a wonderful spirit and I know heaven has gained another very special angel. Please give my mom a hug for me.

Helen was one of my first friends here. I appreciated all the advice she gave me even when I didn't like hearing what she told me although always the truth.

I will miss her deeply. Prayers of comfort and strength to her family.

So so sad to hear this. I was just wondering how Helen was doing - then this. She was indeed a saint in the ASL world. Love and prayers go out to her family.
