I was sorry to hear that helen has passed away. My mother, lillian pratt considered helen a friend and they were co-workers at kitingers. I remember helen as a very ice lady who always took time to ask how we were doing whenever we came to the back door of kitingers to see our mom after school (back in the old days). She will be missed. Mary lou (pratt) boise.
