Steve and Mary Beth, so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. The memories are flooding my mind from Plum Street. I remember your Mom and Dad caring for my brother Mike and I when our little sister, Laurie, was born. We loved playing with your Dad's beagles, especially Smokey. Your mom kept us stoked with cookies while your Dad helped us make gifts for our parents in his wood shop. I could go on, but not here.
Please know I will never forget your parents. They were wonderful to all the neighborhood kids.

Helen was a second mother to me and the rest of us Kennedys. She and Bob brought us along on fishing trips, camping trips and all other kinds of fun activities. I chuckle every time I think back on the Red Lake trip when she and Mary Beth were interrupted by a hungry bear while picking wild blueberries! Good times.

We spent as much time over at her place as we did at home during the summers growing up on Woodridge.

Her Popsicles were legendary! As were her chocolate chip cookies and pancakes. Such a wonderful cook! So many great memories of Helen. Rest in peace.
