Dear Lillian and Oliver,

I'm very sorry to hear about the passing of your Mother and my Friend Helen Bogart. Your Mother meant the world to me, and she was always on my side no matter what. Whenever I asked her to help me with project that I was working on, whether it was for the Chicken BBQ Dinners at RVUMC and or for Ulster County Chapter 60, Inc. Vietnam Veterans of America, she was right there.

Our Family especially loved her Pickled Beets!!.

I am going to miss your Mother and my Friend more than I can say in words. Thank you Helen for your Time and Your Talent. Rest in Peace.

Love Lamont

Helen was a wonderful friend and neighbor to our family. We loved visiting especially for Halloween and Christmas goodies! We remember when Helen got Peter to make a Santa visit on Christmas Eve one year. We used pillows but he was still a pretty skinny Santa! Helen will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
