Remembering “Mommy Helen”

Written by Wallace Allen IV

Last January, Dorothy Pryor-Rose passed on to be with the Lord. We all recognized her as “Mommy Helen” because she was the face of “Mommy Helen’s Bakery” in San Bernardino. The Bakery is still going strong! Dorothy’s daughters, Tedra and Kesha, have dedicated themselves to maintaining their mother’s high standards and successful recipes. The following letter is their salute to their mom, our Mommy Helen. I think that I am going to 1440 South “E” Street and “remember” her the way she would want us to… I am going to buy a potato pie!

Dear Mom, Wow we can’t believe that it’s been a year since you have been gone. Your Legacy is continuing and the bakery is thriving. We miss your words of encourage and unwavering faith. When everything feels overwhelming we remember to keep the faith just like you taught us. Although we miss you and at times your absence becomes overwhelming, we know we have to continue your vision.  We promise to continue to make sure that your vision comes to pass.  Mom, you’ll always continue to be in our hearts. Until we meet again.  Love your daughters.
