Our sympathy to all of you. Helen was a special lady. We first met her and Milford at North Highlands before the start of Broadway Church. Our paths crossed many times through the years and she always had time to ask how we were and about the family. She will be missed when we go to Golden Years to visit. Sorry we had to miss her service.
Cliff & Nancy Campbell

Darlene and Family: Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of your Mom. We met when my mother, Helen Federspiel, moved to Golden Years. Mom loved playing cards with Milford and my sister, Marge Avery, and I loved visiting with you mother after Milford died. I know she was ready to leave this earth and be with Milford and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Mom has been gone now 2 years and 2 months and I still think of her every day. May you find comfort in knowing she is well and happy again. Madeline Cook
