Tom and Family,
Very sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. Both your Mom and Dad Ray positively impacted the educations and lives of so many students at our High School. Jim Vosmek was very correct about your Mom's smile. Good Bless.

Tom, Mary & Mark: Our Condolences on the passing of your Mother. Our thoughts & prayers are with you. Helen was a positive presence in both school and community. Getting "sent to the principal's office" was easier to take when she was on duty! Remember her smile always. May God's grace and comfort be with you all.
Jim Vosmek and family.
