Helen wasn't officially my grandma, but she always felt like one. When I would see her once every few years, we would talk about sharing the same birthday. When I would ask how she was, she would always say, "Oh, I can't complain." She was a sweet lady who would take the time to sit with me & ask about what I was doing. I will always think of her on our shared birthday.
