Anne, John, Lee, & Woody - I was startled to hear your mother's name today when Westminster PC in Wilmington read her name at the communion table during their observation of All Saints. I have such wonderful memories of your mother---how gracious and lovely she always was. My dad loved working with Helen on any number of projects for First Presbyterian. It feels as though she is the last of their generation, who all loved and led us well when we were growing up. We'll remember these saints with joy and gratitude. I'm glad you were able to hold on to her so long. Peace.

I send my heart felt condolences to John, Anne, Lee and Woody. I will miss Helen in ways that are hard to describe. She was the definition of a dedicated friend, always there for Tommie Sue and any of us that needed her attention. Honest, funny and always forthright about her opinions, I was glad to find myself on the "right" side of her politics! Helen seemed never at a loss for a question to ask that would start a conversation. I will miss her. I send you all my love.

I absolutely adored Mrs. Helen. She was a patient of ours. We always visited and talked and she was always thanking me for being so sweet and patient with her. She was a joy to be around and I can still hear her sweet southern voice. She will be greatly missed. Beautiful sweet lady.

Helen was truly an amazing renaissance lady! She was on the search committee of the committee that called me to become the senior pastor of first presbyterian in Monroe. She taught me, be he friended me and my wife, Gayle. She challenge and encouraged me. Many times, she and Roy opened their beautiful home for first Presbyterian Church gatherings. She let me know that she, like me, we are recipients of the faith of a lady named Dorothy Street. Who guided both of our grandmothers back in the 1930s. I am so very grateful for Helen. “Come on well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord“ Ed
