    Dear Shirley and family, Please accept our deepest condolences on the loss of your Mother. Even though I have only known Helen for a short time since she moved into the Ormstown Residence, she was always such a kind lady and a great friend to my Mother, Jean Arnold. She always made a point of stopping and chatting with us when we were visiting my Mother. I find it still so hard to believe that I won't see her face on my next visit, we were only talking to her last week and had Christmas dinner at residence with her. I know that my Mother is very upset over the loss of a dear friend and she will be deeply missed. Joanne and Richard Anderson and Jean Arnold
