    Mary Helen and Ms Hooks were so very dear to us. We loved them both like family. Went on vacations together and evacuated the hurricane together, went fishing together and shared many blessings with each other. Worked together for many years. Heaven has certainly received an Angel. She will be missed by so many. We love you Mary Helen

    So sorry to hear of Mary Helen’s home going. She was a true friend to my mother (Sheila Williams) and me when we first moved to Winnie in the 80s. Have never met a sweeter, kinder spirit since. She and Mrs Hook befriended us without condition. Heaven has truly gained an angel.
