    My prayers and thoughts are with you Ms. Betty, Bob, and Tracy! Ms. King was a beautiful women inside and out and she will be missed by many! I enjoyed the time I got to spend with Ms. Helen she amazed me in so many ways. Her memory was AMAZING and I could set and listen to her stories for hours! My prayers and thoughts are with each of you during this time and for the days to come. We can all take GREAT joy knowing Ms. Helen is singing with the Angels and not only has she been reunited with her husband she has also seen the face of our Lord and Savior.
