It was a pleasure to be able to get to know Helen and her family as her nurse for many years. Helen and I had a lot of great moments talking about life, children, and grandchildren. She was surrounded with love and kindness in the last years of her life. This shows what an awesome lady she was because God made sure she had good care and loving people to look after her.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during your time of loss. Even though you will miss her greatly, your Mother will be busy catching up with loved ones who have gone before her and helping expand God’s beautiful garden now.
