Helen was such a special lady. She was always a true friend and the go to person in hard times.We had a lot of special times together, especially around the holidays. When she decided to remodel her mobile home here in No. Chas. I told her she was crazy, but that didn''t stop her. I helped her and we really had some VERY FUNNY MOMENTS. The finished job looked just as great as if a contractor had done it. I loved you Helen and will always remember you.

Helen used to be my next door neighbor in Ladson, SC. and I babysat the boys when they were little. She was a great lady and always took time to talk to me and guide me through things that teenagers go through. I will always remember her kindness and smile. She always made time for me. She was a very good mother and loved her boys. She is now a angel watching over us. God Bless the family and those close to her she will never be forgotten. I love you Helen and I will always remember you.

I met Hellen through Ron and Glen. I got to know the very very special lady over the past couple years. She was a fantastic woman in all ways. She raised two of the most wonderful sons I could have ever met and say I'm very fortunate to know them. We had a lot of fun when me and Ron was with her this summer. The memories will always be with me. We kidded Ron a lot and she told me lots of stories about her family. She had lots of stories about Mark and Glen and im glad she shared them with me. She will always be in my heart and I will think about her often

Hellen was such a great human being and I will miss her dearly! She was there for me as a teenager when my mother died in a tragic accident and I had no place to live. She gave me safe harbor in a home filled with love and kindness. Always quick to flash that electrifying smile and ready to share her wisdom and give good advice in matters large and small. She had such a calm and relaxed demeanor that is a great example for all of us in this crazy world. I will never forget her for all of the days of my life! I AM SO PROUD FOR HER TO HAVE CALLED ME 'SON'.

We will miss Hellen. She always had a postive outlook on life and was a very good neighbor. She help us on many occasions look after grandmother. We would always wonder how they could commuuincate with each other being only one could only speak Korean. I was always amazed on how hard she worked in her yard, she did twice the work I did. We will always remember her as the happy friendly christian lady who treated everyone fairly. We have such a limited time on earth until we are called home. There is no pain only happense to where shes gone. God Bless those she left behind. Peace
