When I think of Aunt Helen, I think of a classy, well spoken, and smart lady. I admired her and was intrigued by her earlier life as a therapist and social worker. Unfortunately, I didn't get to spent a lot of time with her but I always enjoyed our talks at family reunions. She always seemed to love to hear stories about my kids, and that always meant a lot to me. I can still picture her beautiful smile and laughter as we would share stories. I also know that she was a great sister to my mom. Mom would talk to her for hours on the phone and Aunt Helen was always there to listen, both mentoring her through some very difficult times, as well as celebrating some really great times. It makes me smile to think of them reuniting in Heaven. Reggie and Teresa, I will be holding you in my prayers in the weeks and months ahead, prayers for Peace and rest. I know you will miss your mom greatly. May you find comfort in beautiful memories and Peace in knowing that your mom is free from all pain, and rejoicing in Heaven as she praises our Lord and Savior face to face, and is reunited with Uncle Tucker and so many loved ones. With much love. Gina

Dear Bro. Reggie,
I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember long ago when I first met your mom in Clarksville. She was the sweetest lady. I know you took good care of her and you will miss her forever while on this earth, but rest assured that you will someday be with her again. May God bless you and your sister. Call me anytime.

Mrs. Helen, was my neighbor growing up on Park Lane. I will always remember her cheerful smile and her kind hospitality.
I'm grateful for our recent visit with her in November, as we reminisced at her kitchen table over lunch with she and Reggie.
Mrs. Helen loved God and loved people.
She was truly blessed to have such a wonderful son who lovingly took care of his mother until her last breath.
May God bring comfort to all her family in the coming days.

Not only were you a confident, a friend, but most of all you were My Sister. I loved you so much and will miss you greatly. I catch myself each day thinking I could call Helen and she would know. I know you are safe and pain free in arms of your Lord and Savior. What a joy, which I can only imagine, it must have been to look upon His Face and fall on your knees and praise him. You will be sadly missed but look forward to seeing you again when we are reunited in Heaven. Your sister Betty L Warren

To: Mom
From: Reggie

I hope your dancing in the sky,
And I hope your singing in the angels choir,

And I hope the angels know what they have,
I'll bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived,

Tell me what does it look like in heaven, is it peaceful, is it free like they say,

Does the sun shine bright forever,
Have your fears and your pain gone away,

Tell me, are you happy,
Are you more alive ?
