Dear Minich's, Please know that we are with you in our hearts,our thoughts, and our prayers. I think back on my childhood and can not remember a time where Aunt Helen wasn't there, loving us, supporting us, and making us feel special. My heart aches for the loss of her, and I wish all of you only peace as you try to go on without her. I love you all so very much and we will all be together very soon. All my love, Colleen, Jeff and Kids.
