    My deepest condolences to Helen’s family. She was a wonderful woman and an example to all that had the pleasure of knowing her. Some of my fondest memories, as a family, was when we would go to Longwood and visit Helen while she was in college. The picnics in the mountains and the time we spent I will cherish forever. Visiting the family in Chesapeake was one of my most treasured experiences. The faith Helen displayed and the faith of her family is a tribute to her strength and her love of the Lord. Warren, Gary, Debbie, and all of your families, I wish you peace at this time and share in your sorrow and love for an amazing woman, my cousin Helen Wright White. God bless you all.
    Richard and Diane Peyton
