    My life has been so blessed to have known her and the children that she and Alan cherished. After I moved overseas, I did not see her as much but when I did it was always the same. She made feel special and loved at each visit. Words fail me to say how deeply I respected her. I will remember how her voice was filled with music. Rest in Peace, Mrs. Smith.

    Our hearts are saddened by your loss. Wishing you comfort and peace. Our deepest condolences to the Smith family. Melanie and Stefan

    My deepest condolences. Helene was an amazing mother who raised a wonderful family. I have many happy Christmas memories at the Smith house, when Helene invited us all for dinner to enjoy some of her tourtiere. My heart is with Helene’s family in this difficult time.

    Helene, I will miss your calls. You were a sweet caring Grandmother and always there to listen might not agree with everything, but knew when to keep quiet.
    Love you always Betty
