what an absolute inspiration, what a shinning example. What a life well led.” I refer to Helen Walton as Mother Helen because that’s who she was – a very significant mother to the way we all do business in the twenty-first century.

              Monday, April 23rd, 2007 however was her date with destiny, the day that our earthly angel went home with a proper and honorable sendoff. The “Witness to The Resurrection” ceremony for Mother Helen began at about 1:45 p.m. central standard time at First Presbyterian Church, located in the city of Bentonville, Arkansas.
