  1. Dear Art, Bill, Sue, Janet and family, My mother just called to tell me about Helen yesterday. What a loss, she was such a special lady. I\’ve shared countless Christmas cards with her over the years, and was so glad to see and talk to her at Easter time. How she beamed when we talked about her grandchildren! I\’m one among many who will miss her very much. With sympathy, Kathy and Nick Markowich
