Condolences for Helma E. McLeod

My deepest sympathies. Helma welcomed me into her home when I was a college student in the early 1980's. She was always a warm, lovely person to be with and spoke often of her family over seas. When I visited her last she was so happy to share stories of her grandchildren. She has been in my thoughts often as I have shared my home for students that were away from their families. She will be greatly missed.
