Dear Children, Grandchildren and Greatgrand children: What a special sister in the Lord!! We walked through the valley, rejoiced in green pastures, laughed until we cried as we met together in the Lord! What a joy as we worked together at the Christian Academy! She was better than any room mother! She reminded me of a female Nehemiah--always willing to fight for her family no matter what. She always knew the Lord was on her side and He was forever Faithful and True to her. I know you kids will miss her. Imagine her just away and you will see her someday soon She is not dead--she is just away I will continue to pray for you and I love you all.

I took care of Helen at Genesis East every night 3rd shift while she was with us. She was the strongest woman I have ever met! We became quick friends and she knew she could count on me to be there even if it was just to hold her hand. I always called her beautiful and I was her pumpkin. She touched my heart like no other! We all thought the world of her on the csu! I came in early one night to sit with her when she was haveing a rough night. I sat with her for 12 hours that night and cried about the whole night and would just sit and hold her hand. I'm so glad I got to spend that time with her. I'm sorry for your loss! All of us at csu feel your pain and will never forget my beautiful! Helen will always have a special place in my heart and will never be forgotten!
