Sister Helen Wild
My Aunt, Sister Helen Wild turned 95 today. She is a smart, loving, devoted woman who gave her life for the service of God and those less fortunate around the world. She entered the Maryknoll Missionary Sisters in her 20's and remains the spiritual, giving person she always was. The thing I remember most about her from my childhood was her sweet, gentle voice and quiet laughter that seemed to open a window to the breeze of her pure heart. I visited her at the Maryknoll Retirememt Center in New York last summer and her voice brought all the memories sailing back. Aunt Helen, I wish you a day of comfort, peace, and memories to cherish. May God bless you today and every day.
