My dear friend Helen, you were my best friend which no one can replace. I have laughed and cried with you. You helped me go through some pretty tough times and been there through the wonderful times. You loved your family and were so proud of Jackie, Georgia and their partners Peter and Andrea, we couldn’t wait to have grandchildren together, we would laugh at the thought because we both wanted to spoil them rotten then give them back. I only have to go into our garden and be reminded of you, I have a fern which belonged to your Mother, you gave it to me after we cleaned out your Mother’s house, an orchid that we brought on day in Gisborne and a rose which David, Bill you and I brought at Bendigo. I have so many found memories of you, Bill, David and I in Thailand, Swan Hill, Portarlington and Yamba. I have also so many fond memories of our lunches together and our shopping trips, you looking after Archie and myself looking after Xavier, we made a day of getting together so the boys could play and we would have a talk. In the earlier days going to the gym and doing body balance classes, it didn’t help us much but we had fun. David and I are so blessed to have had you as a friend and we will miss you every day and if anyone has a friend like you I hope they cherish that friendship because you were one in a million. I never got to say goodbye, so for now I will say till we meet again. We love you Helen. Love always Julie and David xxxx

I feel so much more than I'm able to express at this time. The loss of Helen has suffocated my heart for the second time in my life. Helen has been a long time friend of the family, she new my husband Michael from the time he was barely 13 years old. On his passing Helen stepped up and was there for me every moment of the way. We shopped our way through our grief and began many diets and exercises including thia chi. I have a small poem my dear friend for the gratitude I feel to have had you in my life. POEM: To lose someone I loved so much Brings pain beyond belief There are no words to ease my pain, my sadness and my grief, I feel I've lost someone so close, so wonderful and dear, I think about your special ways and wish that you were near. But although you have left this world, you'll stay within my heart, Guiding like an angel even though we are apart. For love is everlasting and so are my memories - Your legacy that's always there to light the way for me. Love Danni Bill, girls and extended family, my promise to you will be that I will be there for you at any time of the day, for now and always as Helen was there for me.xx

Helen Connors was my sister in law, whom I met in 1968, when I was only 7 or 8. I have a strong memory of Helen, Bill, Jean and Carl playing a board game in our sisters Lizzie's bedroom in Ronalds Court, Drouin around that time and the room was filled with smiles, laughter and joy. This was Helen: smiles, laughter and joy. As an 8 year old boy, I always felt like Helen was pleased to see me. She had that effect on me for the next 50 years. My life was made infinitely better because Helen was in it. It is unfathomable that Helen is no longer with us, that I will not see that smile, hear that laughter or feel that joy again. That absence is heavy, as heavy as anything I have ever felt. Her passing at such a young age leaves me feeling cheated that there should have been so much more time, so much more joy. It is truly sad for us all, however if she had not been part of my life at all, it would have been more tragic for me. Vale Helen, a life well lived, you will be so sadly missed.

We first met Helen & Bill when they joined MBCM about 17 years ago. After our first meeting it was evident that they were kindred spirits who enjoyed having a good time while not taking life too seriously. Helen had an infectious enthusiasm for all things and would always have her unique view on matters which were usually very insightful. She was a joyful spirit, a loyal friend, articulate, generous, compassionate and knowledgeable on many topics. We will always have loving memories of Helen from our trip to England and Europe with Bill and Helen for Helen's 60th birthday. Love from Greg. The things that I remember about Helen: Her friendship and kindness. Her laughter and ability to make you laugh with her quick wit. Her passionate views on all aspects of life and acceptance of your views. Her love of her family and for all of her friends. Her generosity to those around her. Her love of cooking & wonderful recipes that she made. Her love of travel and interest in going to new places. We will miss you Helen. Love from Glenda Love and condolences to Bill, Jackie, Georgia and all the family. Love from Greg and Glenda.
