    Judy and Mark Ederer send their deepest sympathies. We had some great moments to remember. I will miss you Helene. God Bless you through your suffering times. You were one of the strongest persons I have known. I am sad to know our phoning did not reach each other during these difficult times. I prayed God was by your side. I remember when we would share a room and we had so many laughs, stories and tears. Rest in peace my friend Helene.

      I’m sorry for your loss. My grandmother’s mother Agnes was Helene’s father Edwin’s sister. I’d love to speak with her son Michael Moody. Can you email me and help? Thank you so much and may God bless.

    I remember Helene and Mace Miller as two terrific people at AA&CO in the accounting area. Both ladies were friendly and helpful to a young man in his first job fresh out of college. Rest In Peace!
