She was very proud of the red 1970 Ford Maverick that Louie bought for her. Helen was a member of First Baptist Church and was active in the choir and bible studies. Helen and Louie would even host bible studies in their home which they so enjoyed. Our family would daily read a scripture from our loaf of scriptures which sat on our kitchen table. Daily prayer and bible reading was very important to Helen. She listened to many bible teachers and always pastor Salem every Sunday. Her faith was important to her.

Mom and Dad paid for our music lessons which were many. She was so proud of her sons as they played and practiced. Helen enjoyed baking, especially her Greek cookies.
