Helen Ruth was an intelligent, gentle woman who was admired and loved by so many. She was president of our senior class at Harrison High and deserved the many accolades she received. She and I were privileged to attend Girl’s State together as Harrison High School juniors. I treasure her friendship and her memory.

My parents loved Helen Ruth and Dale and cherished them both. Dad knew Helen Ruth all his life and said they met in a car ride home to Harrison where Dale was going to visit with Dad's family. After meeting and riding with Helen Ruth, Dad said he barely saw Dale except to sleep all weekend. Whether that is all true or not is up to conjecture but Dad swore it was. All my love to all the family.

Thank you Lila. Your parents were so very special to our parents. They are now rejoicing together.
