Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. We have many fond memories of spending time at Howard and Helen's home in Mansfield when growing up in the Hess home. In recent years, it was always a pleasure to talk to Helen at Belmont Tower while visiting our parents.
May you all cherish your memories and find peace and comfort in the days ahead.

In Deepest Sympathy,
Stan and Nancy Hess
