Ken and CarolDear John My final memory of Helen is from the day she and I turned 80 years old. She looked very fit,, was walking briskly along the Corridors of McCormick House. We knew she wouldn't recognize us, but after all,, It was OUR Birthday. We had enjoyed many special dates together over a lifetime. Together you and Helen were a force with which to be reckoned. You raised amazing children,, Did it all with Dignity and Grace. Helen's legacy of Stained Glass found around this city of London is only one of her many artistic talents. She was also my fierce partner at Duplicate Bridge until the cards began to lose their appeal for us. I miss my "birthday-buddy" but will always have the fond memories with which we carry on. Our Deepest Sympathies to you and Andrew, Glenda, Jim, Philip and all your grand-children in this most sorrowful of times. Ken and Carol
