    Just found out and was Very Sorry to hear of Helen's passing. I met Helen, her husband Bob, and their daughters Helen and Norma on a flight from VA to CA back in the summer of 1971. It was a fairy tale love story as Helen's daughter, "Helen", and I fell madly in love and I wound up becoming a Christian through accepting Jesus as my savior as the result of the love the Rutledge family showed me. The daughter Helen and I never married, but I often think of her and her lovely parents. Rest In Peace Helen Marie.
