    I am very sad to hear about Helga’s passing. I have done her hair for years and always enjoyed our visits. She was always welcomed by myself or the other girls if she was out walking and just wanted to come in for a coffee or a hug. Will miss her a lot. R.I.P. Helga. Thoughts and prayers go out to you .

    I was so very sorry to hear about the passing of your dear Mother Helga. I was out of the country and when I got home Fred Johnson phoned me let me know.
    Helga truly loved her family dearly. She was a very dear soul and friend. She is at peace now with her loved ones in the other world.
    I will really miss her friendship. I know we will meet again some day . My sincere sympathy to you all.

    I am sorry to just hear the sad news that Helga passed away this year. Helga and I became instant friends when we worked together doing our price checking with Sobeys. After our job came to an end we remained friends through dinner parties and phone calls. Unfortunately we moved away to Vancouver Island and our phone calls and visits were not as frequent.
    Our thoughts and prayers to the Oswald family. I sure will miss my friend Helga.
