Dear Carol and Russell, I was saddened to learn of your mother's passing. That always leaves a hole in the ones left behind. We do celebrate that she knew the Lord, and also that she and your dad left behind two find children--grown to be sure, but still her children. You are both fine examples of the faith and values she taught you. And I'm glad to call you both friends. Blessings, Wayne and Regina

When God said in Genesis 1:31a - God saw all that he had made and said it was very good,  I believe that He would say that Mother, Grandmother, Mother-in-law lived “very good” in his sight as he wills it for all of us.  
She was Holy and gifted gifted in many ways but mostly gifted to serve the Lord, serve His people and care for the earth. She had Godly wisdom to say no to some things and yes to the right things.

So her seventh day arrived to rest in eternity and meet our God who says to Mother Helen, “ Well done, good and faithful servant. Come and share your master’s happiness.
Prayers and Blessings for the Borland family as they celebrate the life and now eternal life of their mother Helen. Her legacy and way of living will always be with them.
I feel in love with her the first time I met her almost 30 years ago.

Blessings have been shared through the life of Helen Borland.

I am so sorry for your loss. I'm glad I got to meet Helen. She was spunky and sweet and so cute! She is not suffering anymore and she is in heaven with her husband and watching over you all with a smile. I know she will be missed, but you all are so much part of her that I know she lives on in you. Hugs and prayers for comfort!

So sorry to hear of your mother’s death, Russ.  I didn’t know her, but feel your loss.  My mother, Rosemary Taylor, passed Jan. 13 of this year.  We were both blessed to have our mothers for as long as we did.  God bless you.

Carol, Russell & Family,
I pen these words with my deepest sympathies.  Helen Borland, your sweet momma, grandma & great grandma is one of the finest ladies I have ever met.  Getting to know Helen in the last 20 years of her life was a treasure.  This beautiful lady, a true testament of Gods love & wholesome living, graced her family & friends with classy dignity & Grace.  I loved Helens strong work ethic and the diligence she showed in the way she served her family, community & our Lord.  I admired her grit and sense of humor.  I will treasure the conversations we shared and memories made together.  You are all loved and in the days to come let your beautiful memories of this great lady fill your days with smiles!

Tammy Jacob

My mom and I went to Ohio in July 1996 and I met your parents, John and Helen Borland, along with you. Your brother was not there at the time. So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I liked your mom and dad even if I didn't know who they were at the time. My mom is now going on 93 in July.
