To share my most cherished memories of Helen, there are so many,where do I begin, as a child going into their store with a nickel and spending way too much time to pick out my penny candy, she and ahem husband Holly always patient, never tried to hurry us out.. Awesome, kind, giving caring people. What a blessing she was. As a Junior Aux Member, always a guiding lite, great snacks. She made these cheese wiz and asparagus little sandwiches, so delicious, so many great memories.
