I met Helen three years ago. To know her, was to love her. I had the honor of being called her friend. I took her to several of her last doctors appointments. We prayed and cried and laughed and sang together on those trips and in Margarets home. I held her hand as the doctor gave her the last terrible report. He wanted her to go into hospital-hospice in Jackson, TN. It was her desire that I bring her home to take care of Margaret, although she was not able to care for her. She was a lovely lady in every way. She was extremely kind, generous to her family, loving and giving. God brought that special angel into my life, and she will always live within my heart. She is singing in Heaven, and I look forward to seeing her again.
