Helen was always such a cheerful, optimistic person. She could always see the bright side of a situation. She was kind and loving and she was very much a prayer warrior. She displayed the quality of praying and never giving up. She was a terrific example of how to live life even as she was growing older and didn't always feel real good. I always appreciated time spent with Helen. She always made you feel so important.
