    Oh Mo, my friend our guardian angel this is the hardest thing I have ever had to do....say goodbye to you...We first met when my 4 year old showed up at your door and asked you if you wanted to play :} the next day there was chalk at the front door...within a week there was a fort built in the backyard from wood that just appeared at the end of the driveway :} Mo you were our angel on this earth, my strength when I was struck with cancer,marks strength after back surgery,you were the true meaning of Christmas that may have never been,the food on the table when there was none, and most of all a grandmother to Nicholas and Julianna, You never missed a birthday baptism communion, confirmation,,We will all miss birthday dinners Christmas breakfast and your voice of encourgement Mo you were taken from this earth way to soon.Rest in Peace MY FRIEND...We will meet again :(

    Robert Jr is placing this message for me, as I no longer have a computer.
    Maryellen was a godsend and a blessing to me. She was special. A few days after Jackie passed away, right after the Christmas holidays, Ray and I had to pack up and stay with Bob. We knew we had only until April to resettle him. Our main mission was to find a Home Health Aid to come in daily. We almost gave up when along came this bubbly Irish-looking gal, resembling Jackie. Not only were we able to leave in time to do our income taxes, but we also had peace of mind knowing Bob would be well taken care of. Well...most of you know the rest of the story. Maryellen and I were on the phone once a week, sometimes twice. She and Bob were there for me when I lost Ray. Later, I was able to share my sorrow with Maryellen when we lost Big Brother Bob. I certainly never expected to have Maryellen beat me to that final destination, but one day we will all be there together, fishing and eating shrimp. For now, I will miss not being able to talk to Maryellen on the phone once a week. As I said, she was special.

    By chance you came into my father's life, and gave him a twinkle in his eyes and a smile on his face. In reality, you brought out the best in him and he in turn brought out the very best in you. The two of you were constantly going places, not letting moss grow under your feet. You certainly enjoyed one another's company. Maryellen, you were a kind and gentle person mixed with lots of Irish humor. I will miss you tremendously and forever hold a soft spot in my heart for you. Love Robert C. Hellermann Jr.

    Maryellen was a caring, giving , person .
    We are blessed to have the time we had
    to get to know her .
    I know she was Really HAPPY when
    she and Bob finally said they were getting
    married . I could see it long before they
    did !! Boy what a pair !! They made me
    laugh , she could get him to listen to her
    and would use that quick sense of humor !
    He Loved it and they Loved each other !!
    I was so Happy for the both of them !!!
    And I could sleep at nite I knew Bob was
    WELL taken care of !!
    I enjoyed the fishing trips , Bob really
    enjoyed showing Maryellen and us his
    favorite fishing holes . She would pack a
    wonderful lunch or we would stop at their
    favorite rest. On the water . She was the best
    at making sure Bob was OK. And believe
    me he was OK with her Those two would
    get out and go , but as long as Maryellen
    was with him everything was Good !!
    I enjoyed making crab cakes and sending
    them over for her and u know she would
    always put a Thank You card or note on
    the door . That's just how she was !!
    I look outside my friend looking for you
    walking the dog , then I remember you are
    gone BUT I have you in my Heart and Head
    I know you and Bob are laughing it up together
    again and that my friend makes me Smile .

    and sharing this Wonderful view we are so
    lucky to have here on the River ! I will
    remember your smile your laugh and your
    overall caring self. I will remember you!!

    My Dear Maryellen,

    This world will miss you and all of those you have cared for and those whose lives you have touched.
    Kindness,good humor and generosity were your hallmarks;a light was snuffed out.

    Maryellen was not only my Godmother, but the big sister I never had. I will always cherish and never forget all of the great times we spent together. The memories of staying at her apartment in the City, her taking me to see my first Broadway show, walking and playing in Central Park with Tulip & Too Much, her coming to visit us on Long Island and sharing my room, holiday dinners with all of the pups and our European vacation. She could always make me smile. Even when she moved to Fl, she would never forget a birthday and we could always count on her sending a card to make us laugh. Maryellen was such a kind and special person to me and she will always be in my heart.

    The family holidays spent with Joan and Dave and all of our children (and dogs) are cherished memories and will be fondly remembered.
    We will miss you and are truly saddened to have lost you so soon.
    You will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

    Maryellen was a sweet, caring and loving person. I have many great memories of her from my childhood. Like going on vacation to Greece and her many weekends staying at our house on Long Island. Growing up she was like a cousin, sister and playmate all in one. I'll miss her funny stories, her laugh and quirky sense of humor. Its a shame that Bob was taken from her too soon. I could tell by the way she talked about him she truly loved and admired him and he really made her happy. I know she is in a better place right now with her parents, Bob, and her dogs Tulip and Too Much.
