My heartfelt thoughts and condolences to you all. Helen was my secretary for many years. She was truly a professional in everything she did. She supported us in the department and me personally with caring and friendship. The picture of her here is truly a wonderful memory of that smile. Helen loved all of you so much and was especially proud of her family. May you find peace in this time of loss. God bless.

As a friend of Tom, I grew up watching Ms. Sherwood be the most supportive and loving mother to her children . She had a warm and calming spirit. She will be missed immensely.
