The very first time I met Helen was when Roland and I went to visit her a few years back. She looked at me and said "boy you are bald". She then turned around and went strolling down the hallway with her walker and her cat hanging out of the basket. I also remember her singing take me out to the ball game, so much so I thought we were headed to a game.
