I am sorry I am not able to attend due to work travel but I wanted to wish the family the best and let them know my thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time. Aunt Helen was always so sweet to me when she stopped by my grandmother's house (Mary Conti) while I was visiting. She will always be in my memories.
