Dear Helga, we will all miss you very much. You were such an unexpected but wonderful addition to our family. Visits to Montreal won't be the same without you. May you rest in peace.

Liebe Helga meine „Schwester“, ich werde dich sehr vermissen und unsere gemeinsame Zeit hier in Deutschland; die schönen Gespräche und unsere langen Telefonate. Ich danke dir für die schönen Erinnerungen... ich werde dich nie vergessen. So wie der Wind mit den Bäumen spielt, so spielt das Schicksal mit dem Menschen. Man sieht sich, man lernt sich kennen, gewinnt sich lieb und muss sich trennen. Der Mensch kann viel ertragen und erleiden, er kann vom Liebsten, was er hat, in Wehmut scheiden, er kann die Sonne meiden und das Licht, doch vergessen, was er einst geliebt, das kann er nicht.

I was allways proud having such an elegant and open minded aunt in Canada, who was so courageos to go abroad as a young woman. When you were in Unteröwisheim we spent wonderful times sitting and chatting in the café for hours. Dearest Helga, we will miss you and you will always remain in our thoughts and in our hearts.

Dear Helga, Kerrigan, Brooklyn, Logan and myself will always hold the memories we spent with you close to our hearts. I reminisce about the year you came to visit us in the winter and how beautiful you looked soaking up the warm California sun on your face. I also think of you whenever I look at our orange tree as you loved it so much. I am so honored you considered me your sister as I thought of you in the same way. Although you are missed so much, thoughts of your warmth and kindheartedness will always be with us.

Dies sind einige meiner guten Erinnerungen an Helga... She used to bake me German desert for my birthday and priority mailed it to me since I have always lived so far away from Montreal, and I have shared it with many of my friends who loved the delicious sweets. Sometimes she would call to say hi, and chat, always ended the call with 'love you'. Ich werde dich vermissen, Helga, Ruhe in Frieden.
