Memories of Helen Finney
By Lynne Miller

Sweet memories of Helen permeate my kitchen here oh so many miles away from Ketchikan. I see Helen Finney's smiling face in that beautiful picture next to the notice of her passing published in the Ketchikan Daily News and I smile at all the sweet memories of times we shared together.

Elbow to elbow with Helen in the kitchen at the Presbyterian Church was a warm, inviting, fine place in all of this world to be - as fine a place as any.

I had already planned to make Helen's creamy hash browns for Easter breakfast - put perhaps I will make them this Sunday for my family instead - "feeding" my need (and my husband Rick's) to remain connected to such a special person as our dear friend Helen Finney.

Creamy hash browns it will be, Helen - and some time in the next month or two your Mystery Cake will be served up for the Miller family, also. You live on forever in our memories and our family meal times. Savoring memories of you, Helen, your smile, your kind actions and true friendship expressed toward all the Miller's is now each of our genuine "gift" from you to carry forward.

Thanks for everything, Helen. Thanks most of all for the privilege of knowing you.
