Lorne’s incredibly wonderful, loving and talented sister Helen became an angel this Tuesday. We will miss her many caring ways. It has been hard during these Covid times not to be able to visit and hug her and tell her… remind her … that we loved her. She shared so much joy with us in her lifetime and leaves our hearts full of beautiful memories. All the Lorne Ryan clan send cousin, aunt and uncle hugs and condolences to our Mark, Janet, Chris and Kim and their families. xoxoxo RIP

I’m glad I had the opportunity to meet and to have known Helen Budd. I believe she showed everyone how to live a good life filled with love,happiness and amazing strength. I’m thankful to those days up North and they will forever be great memories. My condolences to the Budd family.

This is a lovely picture of Helen. I have many wonderful memories of family time at Queens Dr and of course Keswick. Mark, Janet, Kim and Chris, thinking of you all and your families.
Aunt Helen was a class act.
Looking very forward to the day we can gather and pay tribute to the remarkable life of Aunt Helen. Thank you for the most beautiful summers of my life. Love you and will miss you. Condolences and much love to my cousin’s Mark, Janet, Kim and Chris. She found her best sunset.
So many amazing memories of summers at the cottage and nights on Queen’s Drive- my childhood wouldn’t have been as great as it was without the generosity and kindness of my godmother Helen. The entire McDonald family owes so much to her. Chris, Kim, Janet and Mark, I hope you can take great consolation in the wonderful memories and know what an impact your mom had on so many.
Our sincere condolences to the entire family. Mom and I were recently reminiscing when we drove Lake Drive the other day. We will always hold onto those cherished memories. Jodi and Joy
