Dear Altman/Klar Family We want to extend our deepest condolences on the loss of your beloved Helen (Auntie Helen to me). Some of my fondest memories were of packing up the car and taking a Sunday drive to Chomedey to visit Franklin Drive. A street like no other, where the Klar sisters resided along with extended family, as well as those who simply felt like family. My parents‘ Saturday nights were almost often with Helen and Sonny. They were such a part of our growing up. Our hearts are with you all during this time with much Love. Penny & Howard🌷

Ruth Goodman - about 1 month ago

Dear dear Entire Klar & Altman Families. Words can never covey the friendship & family relationship we developed since Clark St. At age 6 to almost 90. To be Helen’s friend was a family relationship. Every Simcha we had was celebrated inviting the Klar family. My children to this day refer to “Auntie Helen” with love & affection beyond words. To see the special 24/7 care she had these last few years is a tribute to the special love in one whole family. I feel very fortunate to be a part of my dear friend Helen’s life. Love forever Ruthie.
