Uncle Bobby, it is, indeed, sad news that Aunt Helen will no longer be by your side. However, she most certainly will be hovering overhead, watching over you and her dear boys. I hope you can take comfort in knowing that she is now resting in a better place.
I admired Aunt Helen’s strength and spirit, in the face of the challenges that life presented. She was resolute, loyal and seemingly fearless. God bless her and your family.
