I have very fond memories from my childhood of Mrs Simon. Many an afternoon with Helene at her house. Mrs Simon making chicken wings and listening to Barbara’s Abbey Road album. I felt her home was always warm and inviting. She was a wonderful person and a good friend to my mom. She will always have a special place in my heart. May her memory be of a blessing
