When I was in Health bridge I was on same floor as Helen that was Dec -Jan of 2019 220. I would eat lunch w them. He was such a dedicated husband came every day and ate his lunch w her. And feed her. His love for her was such a example for all of us. May God be w this family as they go through their loss but know she is in heaven rejoicing and singing w God w no pain. Jess DeRuiter
