    I’m sorry about your loss. Mrs Helen seemed to be a very active and interesting person and I’m sure she put joy in the lives of all her relatives. I read that she was active in an Engelbert Humperdinck fan club in the area. That also called my attention because since I moved to Seattle, I’ve been searching for one of his fan clubs in the web but with no luck. Could you please tell me where is the Engelbert fan club Mrs Helen was active with located? I’d really be pleased. My email: acostajorge4000@gmail.com Blessings!
