I always looked for Helen sitting on the bench on the narthex of the sanctuary. And if she sat in the sanctuary it was always to the left as you entered.
She was always easy to spot - with her little "cap-on-head" - it really didn't matter where she sat! There was always a smile on her face - a bit wrinkled but always there.
She was a "benchmark" for all - cheerful to speak to. She was a mile-marker! She has finished her work and gone home to rest! Thanks be to God for her life with us and for us.
