Always thought of Aunt Helen as glamorous and always dressed like a model. She was beautiful, and just as nice. She enjoyed life with her children, going on cruises and of course, the casino. She will be missed here, but I'm sure her siblings were happy to see her. Love to the family,
Janice & Barry Eichenauer
