I thought back to the time when I was little. Aunt Helen and my Mom(Erma Powers, her sister) would get together and dye each others hair. Aunt Helen a bright blonde and my Mom a dark red. Sometimes at her house sometimes at ours. Also while all us kids were at school. They always did a good job. Looked good!! We always had a good time when we would get together with your family!! Sometimes picnics. Sometimes barbeques. Loved to look at Shirley's dance costumes. I think Aunt Helen made most of them. Sequins and frilly. So sorry for your loss. Love and prayers to your family.

AB (Julie & Maddie) I’m so so sorry for the loss of Helen! Losing a Mom is extremely hard but knowing she is well again in God’s arms and back with Chester and James hopefully will
Provide you comfort. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time! I love you all!!
