Helen was such a wonderful, thoughtful person. She was my sponsor with the DAR. I would never have been able to coordinate my information without her. We had many discussions about our Frankenfield Heritage. She will be really missed by us all. My prayers and sympathy to her family. Fran Stitz

Teresa and Dennis, Your mom was one of a kind. Her laugh was so unique you had to laugh when she did. I don't think there was a time we came north we didn't stop to see your folks. It was always a trip down memory lane for me to be able to come back home knowing they were there to welcome me. As hard as it is and knowing how much you miss her I can so imagine her, Uncle Ted and Teddy together. What a celebration that was! Our thoughts and prayers are with both of you and your families as my heart breaks for you. We love you and know that we pray that God gives you the comfort you need at this time. I love you Aunt Helen and will miss you but will see you again. Gail and Wayne
