My heartfelt sympathy to Brother Henry, the children, & my cousins Rebecca and Trayvon. I’ve known Sis Helen the majority of my life. She was blessed to help many & I’m certain she’s received her reward. I was also blessed to worship with her and Bro. Henry at Red Hollow Church and others on many occasions. I pray that God will comfort you all today and in the days to come. Your brother in Christ I trust, -Elder Dominique Hylton of Rock Hill Primitive Baptist Church, Elder Percy Stockton, Pastor.
