  • Here's the story. I saw an old photo on Timehop. It was from seven years ago. I'm sad that things went like that for so long. Helen was such a good friend. She spent entirely too much time in the home. She never wanted to go there and honestly, she didn't have to. But a confluence of events precluded us from intervening on her behalf and she was there for almost 10 years. The end was particularly cruel. I miss Helly so much and seeing pix like this one reminds me how much I miss her. She was my "other" mother. I'm glad that she came into my life and I miss her terribly.
