    Helen was one of my residents. I will miss her very much. She loved me getting her dressed just so she could get a hug from me. I will miss her yelling “Talley hoe” when she needed something and watching her color pictures. She was a little spit fire. So glad she is now in heaven and has no more pain. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. All my love.
