Hello Jane & family. Jane we worked together at Bell Canada. I was so sorry to hear about your mom. Just lost mine as well and I know your heartbreak. My regards to all.
Helen was a resident of Trillium Court, Wentworth Lodge as long as my mom (Phyllis Giddens) has been there. I remember Helen as a lively, lovely lady who was the first to welcome mom to her new home. Helen always had a smile and a cheerful greeting. May fond memories of your beloved mom see you through this difficult time.
To Helen’s children;
Met your Mom at WWL when my Mom Ann moved in a few years. I recognized the name and pictures of all of you from school days from way back. Your Mom was always so pleasant and appreciative when we had our chats! Glad to have met such a sweet woman and I know she will be missed greatly! My thoughts are with you all in your loss.
My deepest condolances with the loss of your Mom and grandmother.
She was such a sweet lady and she gave me many Cape Breton hugs. I have known her for 4 years while my husband Hank was there.
Jane – for some moments in life there are no words
Thinking of you, Stella
