Laura Helling & Family - Sep 11, 2014

HI – I am Lee’s daughter who lives in Washington state. I want you to know how much we truly cared about Don. In many ways he was a surrogate grandpa to my kids. My son Danny especially loved spending time with Don – when we were there in July he had Danny giggling so loud when he said one of the hard root beer candies looked liked a “rat’s behind”.
I truly appreciated how Don treated my Mom like a Queen. I am so grateful for the time they spent together – from just eating dinner together to traveling. It meant so much to me to know that he kept an eye on her all of the time.
Please know that Don was very important to our family – he will be deeply missed.
Much love to you all – Laura (aka “Lulu”)
