    I worked with Helga at the Rochester Civic Garden Center. She was such a tremendous help. She had such funny and amusing stories about her puppies. I know she will be missed.

    Helga was a wonderful neighbor and kind individual. Her energy and enthusiasm for life was appreciated by everyone in our community. We all enjoyed talking with her as she walked her dog PJ. May she be at peace with her husband Kai.
