Nancy & Family:

They say its never too late to make a friend. At the age of 95 I discovered that when, as a resident at Good Shepherd Nursing Home, Helen was assigned as my new roommate….we became instant friends watching out for each other. Although for only a short period of time I will cherish that friendship until we meet again. My family & I would like to express our sadness in her passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Helen’s entire family.
