    My sympathies to Sandy and family on the loss of Helen. I have fond memories of Helen growing up on Grove and Coolidge Streets. She was warm and friendly and always welcomed us neighborhood kids into her home.

    Sandy and Frosty were nearby neighbors of ours, and we always enjoyed visiting with them as we shared evening walks together. She was always so friendly and helpful when I shopped at Kaimans. She will be missed by all who knew her.
