She was my second mother and a constant in my life at a very young age. I am so glad that we were able to “reconnect” last year...experiencing the love and caring that time does not change. Crumb cake was a “staple” and much loved treat (she would fuss at us for eating the crumbs off the top when she wasn’t looking). Helga was “one of a kind” and will be missed.

Saying goodbye after 40 years is heartbreaking, but you're in a blissful place now. Our conversation on September 9 was all about your childhood, your village, family, friends. It was not about loneliness. It was our last communication. Last words from you as we hung up ~ "love you...". Love you too girlfriend.
