    RIP Ma Helen. My sincerest condolences to the family, especially to Buggs and Kurt. Jehovah, guidance and strength be with you as you come to terms with your loss. She will live on in your hearts. She has run the race and is resting now. Stay blessed.

    You also learn knew things in death. Never knew Ma Helen was from Coulibistrie. Have known her all my life growing up in Loubiere. What a genteel soul. Never known her to be vex or mad with anyone. If she did she had an excellent way of keeping it very private.

    My sympathies to her family. May God give you the strength to cope in this difficult times. May her Soul rest in peace.
