Messages & Condolences
Joe, so sorry for your loss of your mother. Thoughts and prayers 🙏 are with you and your family.
I’m sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. I had the pleasure of knowing her for nearly 20 years. She was an avid golfer, and we often discussed her game. Joe, it was also good to get to know you over the past few years. You were very attentive to her, and I know this was a comfort to her. My sincere condolences to you and your family
Joe, my old friend, to you and your family, my deep condolences.
Joe and Grandchildren, so sorry to learn of the passing of Helen! I met her when I joined Alvamar CC and she was a regular golfer I played with on weekends and eventually when I retired we played nearly every day. No doubt about it, she loved the game of golf and did not like to lose—in fact that went for bridge and poker and Casinos. I frequently heard of her luck at the Casinos her and Ken enjoyed. I enjoyed stopping at Helen and Ken’s home to visit with them after I left ACC
However, once they moved from their home I lost track of them. May Helen rest in peace with the love of her life, Ken. Sorry I missed interaction with Helen the last few years of her life. God Bless your family and may God have his angels by your side.
Joe & Denise, it was a pleasure to know and play golf with your mother. I so enjoyed all the stories of the triplets and their older brother during our golf games. She also shared fun stories of Mike’s sons.
