for Helen

I’m going to a funeral today so made this beautiful card for Joe, the husband of a good friend who died last week.  Helen was so pleasant to be around, I loved seeing her and Joe and the smiles they always had.   Helen was very generous and ready to help when needed and fun to be around  . She will be missed by her family and everyone who knew her.
