My deepest sympathy on the passing of Helen. She was a warm and caring women. I had the pleasure of living next door to her and Bob for many years on Battershill. I still miss our conversations across the fence, the cups of tea and words of wisdom as well as the calm and caring nature the two exuded. May we all be blessed for knowing her.
