Barry and Teddy: I'm sorry for your loss

Posted by Cheryl Hanrahan - Norton, MA - Neighbor   October 02, 2020

So sorry for the loss of a great lady. Helen and I go way back going to bingo and Foxwoods. She always was up for a good time. She would call me and ask me if I wanted to do something dangerous and we would be off to play, along with Helena Blum. Helen was fun and optimistic. She will be missed. RIP Helen

Helen will be truly missed; she was an exceptional lady. I remember meeting Barry when I was about 5 years old, the Gill’s still lived on Bay Rd. In the time that Eddie spent building their house on Plain Drive, I would stand by and watch, asking him questions about everything he was doing. All my questions probably added months to the completion of their home because he’d stop hammering to answer me. When they finally moved in, the fun began. I fondly remember Helen playing her piano, she would insist on us being her audience while she played her sweet Adeline songs. I remember the songs she would play so vividly and am reminded of those days whenever I smell pine because of her pine scented stuffed cat. Helen was truly one of a kind. She would take us to their beach house in Falmouth where she’d drive their boat out to the lobster traps. There were so many lobsters, she’d end up sharing with the neighborhood. Helen taught us so much over the years but nothing compared to the compassion she showed me during my many asthma attacks. On a few occasions, I hadn’t brought enough asthma medication and she packed up the entire family, drove me all the way home to get my medication and drove us back, no matter what time it was. Helen took us bowling, golfing and everything the Cape had to offer in those summers I spent with the Gill family. Helen was unique and intelligent, fearless and compassionate and I am so grateful for the time I spent with her and her family. -Jim
