I was saddened to hear of Helen's passing. I and many others have a lot of great memories working with her at the Tractor Club. For many years Helen was the first one to put her name on the volunteer list especially in the kitchen. Everyone at the Club had a lot of admiration and respect for Russ and Helen, they contributed a great deal. The porch on the front of the Clubhouse is called Sanders Porch. We also shared a lot of laughs and good times, even when there was work to be done. I miss those times but will remember them both always. With respect and prayers to Helen's family.
