    Kathy, so sorry to read of your mom’s passing. I was looking for another listing and thought that lady looks familiar. Even though I did not know her you two looked to be mother/daughter. You have been blessed to have had her for so many years. As we travel, I think of you and Don about where you might be. Take care.

    I will miss Helen so much. I’m so glad that I went in her room and sat down and talked with her on Friday. She had decided that she wanted a chicken tender sandwich from subway with everything except jalapeños and wanted sweet onion sauce. Her daughter went and got it and she took 3 bites! She was always so spunky! Prayers to her family.

    Our hearts are broken by your loss. Helen always had a smile on her sweet face. She and my mother were in the hospital at same time having their first child. I feel like she and her family have been like relatives. May you find peace with all the special memories you have. I know she will be missed by all. Our prayers and love are with the family in this time of sorrow.
