    I first met Helen when I was a teen looking to babysit (her sister Susan introduced us) and she let me babysit Derrick before I moved away to California. She was one of the first people that welcomed me back when I came back home to Frankfort. I will never forget the countless times her hug, her smile, her soft spoken words helped even if she didn’t know she was helping. My heart aches for her family because they lost a dear sweet woman that loved everyone with her whole heart. I was in shock when I got online today and read of her passing. Derrick, your family will always carry her memory with them!! I was glad I got to see her even though it was just a brief moment when I came up there a few weeks ago. My thoughts and prayers are with y’all during this time.
