    Helen was my mentor when I first started helping in Bible Clubs at Philpott Memorial Church when I was a teenager. She has continued to be my prayer partner as I serve the Lord Globally. She supported me with her prayers and donations toward my mission trips. She prayed for me everyday and I phoned her after every trip. I have lost a good partner in ministry. God is always faithful!

    I am a volunteer visitor who used to visit Helen at Bertram Place in Dundas.
    We had some great conversations over the past year or so. Our favourite conversation was discussing the
    Toronto Blue Jays. I am going to miss you Helen. Friendship is the greatest gift of all. Peace be with you.

    Helen Wilcox was our neighbour for many years on Buckingham Drive. (We lived next door to her.) We spent many beautiful moments together with Helen and her husband Lou. We lost track of her in the last few years. Sending sincere condolences to the extended family. Affectionately, Helen Valenzuela
