Helen’s Story
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.

Vani, we are grateful for all you and Sarah do for Helen.  She is such a dear soul.  We thought you might enjoy the picture from our visit Jan. 2017.  We sure treasure our times with you two.  We pray that God will give you strength and peace during this challenging time.

Hello to Helen!  I am thinking about you and looking forward to seeing that lovely smile of yours. Remember when you were dancing while the holiday carolers sang in the church lobby?  What fun we all had! Let me know what I can do to help out and when might be a good time for a visit?
