Hi to Helen's family, especially Jan whom I've known for quite some time. I cried when I saw Helen's name in the obituaries. She was always such a delight - bringing sunshine to every place she entered. I remember how upbeat and gracious she was when she lay in the hospital at other times. I especially remember her in the nursing area of the old PHHP when recovering from one of her many episodes with a fussy stomach. Helen was always glad to see me and so, I was glad to see her and gradually came to love her a great deal. I still remember when she and Ed first got to River Landing and my visit to them. Ed was not interested in speaking with me and seemed very distant and angry. What a joy to see him gradually come to accept his situation and begin to live well once again. I know Helen had something to do with that. I will miss knowing that she is in the world and pray for God's loving strength to uphold all of you in this time. Shalom, Nancy
