From Tee's letter: Helen and Tee first met when their daughters Gale and Carol transferred from elementary school into high school. They worked with the Anne Arundel Concert Association. And Tee saw Helen at Anne Arundel Community College when Tee was a student in 1978.
In 1978, they toured the Banff, Lake Louise, and other areas of the Canadian Rockies where they went "Heli-hiking" (he helicopter took them to glaciers). Gesturing with thumb and forefinger about 3 inches apart, Helen liked to tell the story of walking over a very narrow bridge above a deep canyon. She slipped but the guide steadied her. I imagine that Tee helped Helen set aside her terrible acrophobia.
In 1980, Tee and Helen joined a tour led by Reverend Elwood Reitz, Helen's dear friends, following the life of Martin Luther all over Germany. They saw the Oberammergau Passion Play.
In 1982, they toured the British Isles.
Tee writes, "There were other trips in the states, and traveling together was always wonderful and memorable. She was a dear friend."
