Helma was a loving mom and very generous to me as a child growing up with Vicki. . She had a quiet strength. I never once heard her complain about anything. I will always remember her humor and kindness. Love and prayers. Allison

My deepest sympathy to all of you. Years ago when I used to clean for Helma & Richard, I always enjoyed chatting with her. Her kindness reminded me of my Mom. May God bring you peace & comfort during this time.
