We Are Saddened by the Recent Passing of Miss Helen Taylor

 Our dear Lord Craven Member, Helen Taylor passed away a few days ago. Helen was 99 years old and lived a good long life. The cause of death, was congestive heart failure. Since Saturday, Helen received 24 round the clock care and stayed in bed, which was very unlikely for her to do. Her relatives gathered around her at the end.

Her funeral will be this coming Saturday, September 10 at 2:30 PM at the New Hope Presbyterian Church on Cherrytree Road in Winnabow. A visitation will be in the Fellowship Hall from 1-2:15 PM. Andrews Mortuary in Wilmington is handling the details.

The remembrance ceremony is a moving and appropriate way to remember the tragedy that struck our nation on September 11, 2001. After Post 543 Honor Guard presents the Colors, Brunswick County's own Coastal Harmonizers will sing the National Anthem. Jeremy Shrader will lend his voice in song. Members of the St James Fire Department will ring the ceremonial fire bell and Taps will be sounded in honor of the victims who perished. The Coastal Harmonizers will then offer another appropriate song.
