Condolence: Helve and I are old school friends and we go back a long way. She lived one street over, so we saw each other all the time. We had a wonderful childhood with many friends. Our playground was the Beach, The Goof and Balmy Beach Canoe Club. Helve was a shining star always the brightest and best at whatever she did. Her PhD research into acid rain was revolutionary at the time. She became the world-renowned expert on pollution, acid rain and its effect on the environment, particularly white fish. But she was naive and fell foul to those who wanted to conceal the facts about acid rain. Her life was never the same again. Shame. My heart felt condolences to Helve's family. May she rest in peace.
