To the Williams Family: May god continue to Bless and Comfort you during this time. I had the pleasure of meeting Helen and what a wonderful spirit and beautiful personality she presented. Be encouraged to know that "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord" Jake, you indeed gave Helen her flowers while she could smell them!

Jake and family,

I had the pleasure of meeting Helen at PSECU. She was having difficulty at the ATM machine, I helped her and thats how our friendship started. I would take her places, helped her decorate her house and I was so honored when she ask me to go to New York with her. We had a wonderful time, we did everthing she wanted to do that day, she was so happy to just ride in the open air bus and view all the sites and tall buildings. She was quite the fighter and very independent, I admired her for her spunk and willingness to do things on her own. She was such a beautiful person with so much knowledge of the world around us. Helen has been on my mind for quite some time, I knew the last time I saw her she didn't have much time, it weight heavy on my heart not knowing if she had passed or not. Well today I finally located her, I know she is dancing with delight being with the rest of her family that went before her. My best to you and your famaily. I'm so glad I was able to help her and be there for her. Thank You.
