Ben, Please think back to many years ago when we all lived in Greenville and were single. Helen and I had been friends at Columbia College and worked together at the same school. Lots of good memories. We always kept up at Christmas and had phone calls over the years especially when I lived out of state. I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much you and your family meant to her.
