May You Have Peace

It is with a heavy heart and teary eyes that I write about the beloved and fiery Helen Heinsohn's passing. The "red head from Needham" is Tommy's wife and soulmate. It is hard to imagine what that strong man is going through right now. The Balcony Family extends their thoughts and prayers to the Heinsohn family and also to those who have had the pleasure of knowing Helen.

People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura of life which bears no relation to true immortality but through which they continue to occupy our thoughts in the same way as when they were alive. It is as though they were traveling abroad. ~Marcel Proust

Shocked when I heard about it. I had no idea she had been battling cancer for over 6 years!

The C's did it nicely, with the tributes, and the Garden crowd was appropriately silent during the moment of silence; no yahoos yelling something. Well done.

Peace is so fleeting.

What a nice quote, Balcony Gal. The Balcony Family makes a Balcony Memere proud.
