Colleen & family, Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matt 5:4 Our hearts ache with yours. . . Please know we will be praying for you to feel the comfort that only our Savior can give during this difficult time. We are so thankful to have shared in some of the sweet family gatherings and especially Hannah's and Coley's weddings where Pastor Helms spoke. He was a mighty man of God, a patriarch who led his family to love and honor Him. He touched many lives and shall be surely missed. With Love & Prayers, Marty, Susie, Meg, Matt, & Ben

Dear family, Words seem inadequate, but yet we struggle to say the right things at a time like this. Perhaps the thoughts -- and the prayers -- mean the most. So please know that I have been and will continue to lift all of you up in my prayers for I know my God loves you so. He is our great Comforter, and He is faithful.

To the Helms Family: Floyd was not just my pastor, but also a near and dear friend. I know he was ready to go and be with the Lord. But, I was not quite ready for him to go. I pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort you and myself during this time of sadness. I will always remember the rides to the beach to help winterize the beach house. Also the three days I spent with him at his mountain home. My whole family loved him so much.
