Helen’s Story

Site created on January 18, 2018

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated on news of Helen and this makes it easier for everyone. When she was in the hospital the weekend of January 12-15, I found myself sending groups texts and emails and it was confusing and difficult to figure out who got what and who was who. With CaringBridge, we can post news and you can check it whenever you want to. This is good because people can go to Caring Bridge when they want to and not everyone uses Facebook. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Mom has Alzheimer's Disease and Sarah and I have been taking care of her 24/7 since October of 2015. I've been wanting to find a way to share news about her life with people, so I'm hoping this will be good for all of us. Please let me know if you have any questions or messages for her.
