Memories

To the family of Helen Shriner, I join with so many others who knew Helen in the Foster Grandparent Program in offering our deepest sympathy on her passing. The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much money one has or what possessions they have accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched. As a Foster Grandparent, Helen touched the lives of many children who needed a little tenderness and support. May you find peace and comfort in knowing that her loss is felt by all of us who knew and loved her. With sympathy, Linda Stolte
