To the Hirtz Family, My condolences to your family. I remember your mom from our Roseland days. My dad and your mom were cousins. God Bless!

Dear Lois and Family,

May God Bless and comfort you and yours in the loss of your dear mom. She was such a grand lady; it was a privilege for my mom to share the same nursing home with Helen over the last year. You and Jim have been the most wonderful daughter and son-in-law! I will never forget the happy times you brought to Alden with your entertainment. May all your kindness be returned to you tenfold!!!

Helen was a truly lovely lady. Kind and generous, she was always a delight to be around. We will sorely miss her.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her children, and their,s as they endure this most difficult of times.

I never met Mrs. Hirtz, but the video portrays a woman surrounded by a loving family, a ready smile. She had a look of grace and style about her. I am so sorry for your loss, but what a beautiful tribute to a beloved Mother. God's peace be with you all, Liz Gutrich Hastings
