    Keith, Doug, Norton and Crowell family, sorry for you loss, I only met Helen in person a couple times. Helen was one of the people you run across in life that you will always remember. When ever I called the farm I hoped Helen would answer, she was great to talk with, and never was grumpy even if the tractors were broke down. rest in peace
