She'll Be Missed...

Brynwood Needleworks - Diva Helen
Handsome and I moved to Florida in 2001. After spending too long just hanging out at home, I decided to relearn knitting and get out to meet some new people. 
I met Helen in 2008 through a mutual friend (Netta) when I joined Project Linus to knit children's blankets. Helen was also a member of our Tuesday evening Panera's group. 
Helen was a dear, sweet friend and I loved her infectious smile. She had a wicked sense of humor, and made the best desserts to share with all of us when we got together. I have a tiny doll in a locket that she made and gave to me. She was a talented dollmaker years ago. She loved to travel, too.

Yesterday morning, I received a call to tell me that Helen passed into the everlasting on Thursday evening. She was preceded in death by her husband, and is survived by four children (and her grandchildren). She will be missed by her family...and remembered fondly by those of us who called her "friend". 

Rest well, Helen.

It's always hard to lose a friend. Helen looks like a very sweet lady. May light perpetual shine upon her and may she rest in peace.
