Dear Jim, Lynn,Leanne, Ruth and family,
My heart goes out to you all at this time of loss, Helen was beloved and will be dearly missed. I am terribly sorry that I can’t make it to the memorial service today, I had hoped to see you in person. Helen was more than a hair client, she was a friend and we always had wonderful visits. Her optimism, lively spirit and encouragement always lifted me up, and she made me feel very special.
I know God will be with you all, comforting and lifting you from sadness. She is home now.
With love,
Kelly Voth (Helen’s hairdresser)
