Helen was a wonderful quilter and very generous in sharing her knowledge. I loved to hear her laugh.

Julie, Paul and family: It was a pleasure to know Helen & George. We always had a good laugh because she was so cheerful, kindhearted and just a friend. Jo Nell and I extend our sympathy to all of you at this time. We know she is with George now and most of all, her Heavenly Father. She gave her life to Him and those that knew her were blessed in many ways.

Helen was the sweetest neighbor. We loved how she took Rusty under her care and showed him how she liked her yard. She always had such a beautiful yard. We will always cherish the special visits and times we spent with her. You are all in our thoughts & prayers. Love Bruce & Sherri Hartman

I didn’t ever meet y’all officially, but I knew all about Rusty. Mother talked about him and the help he gave her with the yard. Thank you for your support during this trying time.

Grammers truly always made you feel like you were the only one in the room. We were so excited to have her join us here in Plainview at Ninth and Columbia. We love you, Hodges family, and we loved Grammers dearly. You will be missed! The Ramirez Family
