Public Tributes and Expressions of Sympathy

She was one of the sweetest, kindest person I knew. I always enjoyed spending time with her. I remember visiting one Easter and I left Moberly on the train. I was supposed to get off at Mexico but for some reason I didn't. I saw Aunt Helen running after the train yelling for it to stop!!! HaHa I got off with my suitcase and she was all out of breath. She said the next stop would have been St. Louis. We had a lot of fun that trip. She was always so sincere, and taught me many things. I know she is in heaven now and happy for her to be there. My Dad Gene has many memories that he is telling me about and what a fantastic person she was to him. He will miss her. - Candy Lewis Kiesel
