Remembering Helen

Cathy and I are grieved by the death yesterday of Helen, the mother of our son-in-law D. Helen and her husband Noel moved from Ireland to the U.S. when D was just a kid. We first met her at the wedding of D to our daughter Becki.

Becki told us recently how Helen had reached out to her in recent months, strengthening their relationship. It's almost as if she knew her time would be short. We will be forever grateful for her and what she meant to our family. After all, she brought Molly's daddy into the world and we deeply love him.

Our prayers today are with Noel, D, Becki, Molly and all the rest of Helen's family.

Thanks Sam. I wish you could have had the time to get to know each other but you at least know the part of her that is in me.
