Comments:

It was an immense honor and privelidge to get know and take care of Miss Helen while she was with us in the ICU at Community Hospital. though sometimes were tough and she gave us all a run for our money on multiple occasions, she seemed to always bounce back sassier than ever. Miss Helen often gave advice, praise, and even critisism disquised as jokes, as she was very witty and funny. i had the opportunity to receive some wonderful heartfelt words of wisdom from her that i will always cherish. Miss Helen has left a permanent impression in my mind and heart, and i will never forget her. Simply Amazing woman. Often as a nurse taking care of patients, you sometimes find that they end up helping you as well. And that she did. I know many of us in the ICU talk about her frequently and will cherish her memory.

Miss Helen was such an inspiration to anyone who met her. She had so much to give, and gave it her all!!! She will be missed so very much.

In one of the stars, I shall be living.

In one of them I shall be laughing
And so it will be

As if all the stars were laughing,

I had lots of fun working on this web site. My biggest regret is that she was so damm private. She just never talked that much about herself.

She once mentioned she liked fishing. I don't fish so I went out and bought fishing poles, tackle and went to this lake to practice. She was pretty ill by this time and I could not get her to go out because she was so ill.

Little did I know, that she was an expert at fishing and here I was going to "teach" her to fish. When I saw those pictures I about choked.

Laughed at the same time. She was really something.
