For the beautiful person you always were, inside and out . The spirit that just soared, you were truly a remarkable lady. There was no keeping you down. You always had such a passion for life, I always enjoyed our time together. There was always a lot of laughter, you spoke your mind and I loved it. The German food and teaching me German words, telling me of your life when you first came to America. Ahh, so many special times with such a fun and loving lady,,, I know you are home now Helga. Such a beautiful soul,,
