  1. Elaine and Eric Leduc :

    Dear: Dianne, Evelyn, and Geraldine, and all family members.
    This is a Native American Prayer for Helen
    I give you this one thought to keep-
    I am with you still – I do not sleep
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain
    I am the gentle autumn rain
    Whey you awaken in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not think of me as gone –
    I am with you still – in each new dawn.

    Our prayers are with all of you. Helen was such a beautiful person.
    Illness kept us away from the services or we would have been there.
    Memories are our own personal photo album, something we all visit and treasure. Treasure the love for your mother and grandmother, for she loved you all. Helen had so much love to give. We will remember our memories of Helen and the joy she brought into our lives.
    Hugs to all
    Eric and Elaine Leduc

    Helen was a wonderful lady who worked for us for many years and who became a friend to our family, her co workers and many of the customers. She always had a pleasant smile and a cheerful attitude. We have many wonderful memories of her that we will cherish forever.

    I am sorry that I lost contact with Helen the last couple of years. She was much loved and “mothered” so many people. Her passing is indeed a loss to many.
