    Your mother was indeed a mother to me. Helen and I shared many memories from Tea Parties at the Tomahawk Creek Apartments to dining on the Plaza to her baby sitting my Pekingnese Keesha. She enriched my life and will forever live in my heart. I am deeply saddend by her loss. I will always love you Helen.
