Donations for Memorial Service for Helen Todd

A reposting for my assistant Kristine...

I write this with a heavy heart. My closest aunt passed away this Saturday. I have some solace in knowing she is now with Christ in heaven. Our family should be celebrating the resurrection of our Savior, but with so much grief looming over us, we are finding that extremely difficult. My aunt was a very amazing woman and helped raise me. After my mom passed away in 1995 she helped take on the burden of raising a young tee...n. She had no children of her own and no spouse. Her only family nearby was her sister Carol and myself. She meant the world to us. Her sister Carol is devastated and besides herself with grief. I am doing what I can to help her through this very trying time.Sadly Helen was on SSI and left no benefits behind for any type of services. As her beneficiary I am left with the difficult task of finding a way to provide her with a respectable memorial service.

None of my family has the money to provide her with a proper service and cremation but we really want to have a service of some sort to honor her life. We don't need anything lavish. Just enough to show our love and respect for her with our family and friends. I hope there is someone somewhere willing to help us. We are asking for donations, no matter how small, for her services.

Any help you have is more than welcome and I am quite grateful for. I know God will provide for my family in this time of need. If nothing else, please pray for us and her safe passage into Heaven to join our Creator.

Cards, flowers and donations can be sent to :

Carol Angell

12301 167th Dr. NE

Arlington, Wa 98223

Or PayPal to

The service will be held May 4th at 6pm in Granite Falls, WA at the Baptist Church.

Thank you all and God Bless you!

Debbie and her beautiful girls... Cara & Kaylene!

Recently I had the privilege of working with Debbie and her two beautiful daughter Cara & Kaylene. I met Debbie while providing a consultation to another customer of mine. We hit it right off. I would like to add that it really took off during the shoot as well. It was a fantastic pleasure to photograph Debbie and her daughters. We all had such a great time I was really wondering if I was working. I mean of course the photos were awesome but we were laughing and having such a good time it just so grand for everyone! It was an experience I won't forget. I have to thank Debbie, Cara & Kaylene for such a wonderful experience. I look forward to next time ladies!
