Helen has meant so much to family and friends over years of sharing her love. It was back about 1957 that I stayed as a boarder at your home on Frederick St. Kitchener for the summer when a student at EBC. May God be with you Lyness.

Lyness and family:
Just heard of your loss when Rebecca was talking to Gavin. Please accept my condolence, she was a real treasure and will certainly be missed. I remember working with her in the Hanover Missionary Church, as she prepared some great meals for weddings and other special occasions. We had some great times working together.

I extend heartfelt sympathy to you Lyness and to your family. The Operation Christmas Child collection will not be the same! I knew that Lyness and Helen would be there waiting or would arrive promptly at 9am on the first day of collection (Monday) it meant a lot to me to observe and recognize the love you both had for Operation Christmas Child.Take care Lyness and trust the Lord's promise that He will never leave you or forsake you. He cares for YOU!
