    Ms Helen was my dear friend for many years. We referred to each other as “sewing buddies”. We not only shared our mutual love of sewing, but our mutual love of the Lord. Many days we spent in her yard admiring the beautiful nature the Lord had blessed us with including our love of the birds. I’m terribly sad today, learning of her passing, but sad only for myself. I am happy for Ms Helen because I know she is with Jesus, which is where she looked forward to being. My prayers go out to her wonderful children, whom she loved dearly. God bless you all, and thank you for sharing your beautiful Mother with me.

    She was surely a wonderful lady. I’m sorry for your loss. May God’s comfort help you in this difficult time. “Blessed be . . . the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation.”​—2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.
