    I am so sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. I knew Helen from working at All Saints. And, to know Helen was to love Helen! I am very happy that I was able to visit Helen last Tuesday. She smiled and conversed with Cindy(Mabel Huth’s daughter and I. I will miss her beautiful smile when visiting residents at All Saints.
