  11. Helen was always someone who could laugh easily, help and listen. I knew her from my time working for KCLS/KDL, and always enjoyed talking with her on my visits to Kentwood Library for a youth program. She was a devoted mother/grandmother and KDL employee and union member. Helen will be missed not only by her family but by the countless number of KCLS/KDL employees and Kentwood Library patrons she encountered during her many years of service. God Bless You Helen.

  12. I am lost for words to describe how I feel right now. That is because there are no words to describe how loving and caring Helen was. She was my girlfriend in Jr high and even back than she was the most sweetest and caring person around and that made me the luckiest guy in school and I will treasure those memories for ever.
    I know in times like this there are no words to take away the pain but to her children I want to let you know personally you are the luckiest kids in the world to have has a mom like Helen and I hope you all treasure the memories as much as I will.
    I will miss you more than words can say, I love you Helen and may God bless you and give you the happiness you deserve.
