I am very sorry to hear about the passing or Ms Helm. She was a very nice and gentle lady. I am sure she will be missed by many family and friends.

Maryanne and family I am sorry to hear about your Mom. I want you to know she was the sweetest person I have ever known and I mean that with all my heart. I wish I would have visited her more so she could show me her beautiful quilts. You all are blessed with the peace of knowing she is home. I know it’s hard to loose a mom. I am in Marshall Arkansas house sitting but if I can I will see you tomorrow. I love you my dear friend and I am praying for you and your family.
