"Grandma" Helen as I've always heard her called was truly one of the kindest women I've ever known. Her love for her animals and strays was never-ending. The love she had for her grandchildren was so evident and the pride was always ever present.
Rest in peace Helen. I've got Jacob and will take care of him.

I have often wondered about Helen the past few years. She was my friend's mom. She was always kind to me. My condolences to the family.
