    I only had the pleasure of knowing Helen briefly; i met her in the lobby of Schenley Gardens while visiting my cousin Annabelle. Helen and I would talk a bit. One afternoon, when Annabelle was playing the piano in the dining area, Helen brought up a chair and joined us in singing old songs. That image has stayed with me and I want to extend my condolences to her family.

    To all the Karpinski Family,
    Helen and I volunteered at the NHCOI for a number of years and it was a fun time. She had such a dry sense of hummer and I loved it. She was a fun lady and will be missed. My sympathy to you all.
