    To the Family – This is Pastor Chuck Williams from Helen’s church – First Baptist. I had the privilege of being Helen’s pastor for 14 + years. What a wonderful servant of the Lord. Helen volunteered for many of our church functions with her many friends from her First Baptist family. I would have been honored to do her service but in my absence I was pleased that our IT pastor, Kathy Martin, stepped in and did a fine job of honoring both Helen and our Lord. Helen will be missed at First, but we all rejoice she is not suffering anymore and is at home with our Lord Jesus Christ. Blessings and peace to the family.
