The Memorial Candle Program has been designed to help offset the costs associated with the hosting this Tribute Website in perpetuity. Through the lighting of a memorial candle, your thoughtful gesture will be recorded in the Book of Memories and the proceeds will go directly towards helping ensure that the family and friends of Helen Birkland can continue to memorialize, re-visit, interact with each other and enhance this tribute for future generations.

Thank you.

Condolence: We were so happy to see Helen in August. So sorry to hear about her passing, but joyous in the knowledge that she is now with Jesus!

Condolence From: TJ Morrow
Condolence: Many good memories of times spent as a family with Aunt Helen, Uncle Lloyd, Geri, Mary & John. I know Helen fought a tough battle but lived such a wonderful life. She will be missed. I will always remember her great spirit and can do attitude for life. May you remember what a great lady she was. Much Love.
