  1. My few visits with my Aunt Helene, we would hug warmly; then he would back away and allow my aunt and me to fall into each other’s arms and talk. He stayed in the background, smiling. That’s how I will remember him; smiling as his beloved Helene goes about the day. I will miss him.

    Helene, I’m so sorry to hear this news ! May God comfort you at this time . You had a good , long life together and lots of memories to hold on to. God bless you and your family at this time .
