Ms. Helen was a very godly and loving lady. I will miss her presence at the Lightle Center and K-mart Shopping for hats. I look forward to seeing her and renewing our friendship in heaven!

Ms. Helen was a very special friend to me. I will never forget our Saturday breakfasts, shopping trip, and going to the play at Harding. Our Tuesday lunches and Saturday visits were entertaining, full of memories, imaginary shopping trips or vacations and discussing life in general. I will miss her more than anyone will ever know. It is an honor to call her my friend. With deepest sympathy, Judy Roberts

I met Ms. Helen a few years ago,when we went on some of the Senior Trips sponsored through the Lightle Senior Center at Searcy, and also when we ate lunch there. She was a sweet friendly lady...She will be missed.
