Mr. Ed and Family, I will always cherish the memory of Mrs. Helen. She was such a dear sweet lady and I thank God for putting her in my life for the time that he did. I enjoyed our talks and her advice she gave me. She loved her Lord and Savior and she dearly loved her family. She talked highly of all of you and was so proud of you too. Thank you Mr. Ed for letting me be a part of your Mom's life. I loved her and I will miss her too. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May God comfort you and your family during this time. Sincerely, Pamela Vaughn

Dear Edward and other family members, Ms. Helen was dear to Maner and me. She was such a calm, quiet spoken, kind, lovely lady! Our family loved her brother, Uncle Hugh Stanley, who had the same traits! Mr. Charlie and Ms. Helen would come by the office for short visits when I was in Greensboro and we always enjoyed laughing and talking. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers. Marjorie
