    I met Helga when we moved to Grayslake in 1965. She was very gracious to us all and a very nice lady. She had a great sense of humor and I always enjoyed talking with her. She’s been sick for the past few years but very well taken care of by her family. You just can’t beat a classy lady with a great sense of humor. God Bless you Helga, Lou Frank

    To the Churchill family …we were out of town this weekend but our thoughts were with you. Mrs. Churchill was a true lady, and I always enjoyed our chats … usually on her way walking to or from church. We have missed that over the past few years.
