I lived at Shadley in Belvidere. I took Helen to doctors and shopping. After shopping,etc. she'd ask me it I needed ice cream. We'd go to McDonald's and get hot fudge sundaes. Then we'd go to the park. We always parked down by the dam and visited and ate our sundaes. She was a beautiful person inside and out.
Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

This is from Flo DeLong who also lived at Shadley in Belvidere.
Aside from the fact of enjoying card games and playing dominoes with Helen. We did have an incident that scared us all. She opened my car door and the bottom edge made a gash in her leg. After medical attention and healing,we were able to laugh about it.
Thinking of you and your family.
Sincerely,
Flo DeLong
