Dear Tolland Family,

So sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. Many years ago I had the pleasure of working with her daughter, Pam and her daughter in-law, Carla. The one thing I remember most was that there always seemed to be a family get together going on—whether it was a birthday, wedding or some other celebration—it was obvious their family enjoyed being together and, of course, Helen was in the center of it all. Just wanted to let you know my thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

Dear Tolland Family,

I wish I could have been there to join and support you this week. I'll always remember your Mom as courageous, smart, interesting, welcoming, fun and funny. It was always a pleasure to have a laugh with her! I'm so glad that I got to see her and most of you when I last visited two years ago. I'll miss her.
