  8. Helen Bare is an inspiration to us all of a Good and Faithful Servant. When she asked for prayer while she was in hospice care, I reminded her God is Love and I prayed for her to feel the Divine Hug of God. She told me she felt the Love of God and how she was surrounded by love and prayers. I feel very blessed God brought Helen into my life. Now we have another Saint in Heaven to intercede on our behalf, Saint Helen.

  12. I never met Helen but am a basketball buddy of Clay’s at St. Bernadette’s Church. He loved her and always spoke well of his wife. My condolences to Clay and Helen’s family.

  13. Just want to say I think Helen was a great mom. She talked to her kids, got their take on things, spent time with them, was there for their moments, and worried for them….yes, maybe we’re not supposed to worry, but it wasn’t constant, just enough that you knew she loved them deeply. You could also see her love for Clay in subtle ways. Their long time union in Christ, through thick and thin, was a witness to anyone considering marriage. Finally, she did so much to enrich Kristen’s life… and the lives of many others with special needs through her passionate intervention within the school district. She was involved(as a teacher and leader) with faith formation for all ages and allowed God to use her to make a difference. She wasn’t afraid to call a spade a spade, something that was refreshing and highlighted that her beliefs were not up for grabs. It also showed that she did what she could to protect those that needed her. I respected her life choices and will really miss my friend.
