    Helen was like a second Mom to me growing up with Linda as my best friend, I spent lots of time at their house. She was loving and kind, unless we were causing some kind of trouble. I remember her making a great chocolate sheet cake! Take comfort in knowing that she is in the loving arms of Jesus and no longer suffering. You are all in my prayers.
