    Helen will be missed by many. When visiting Lynn Care, Helen was frequently positioned in the gazebo area by the entrance…..always ready with a friendly smile and word. Her kindness was a benefit to visitors and other residents alike. I always admired her devotion to the memory of Joe, making sure neither he nor the sacrifice he made for our country were ever forgotten. David, you certainly personified the same type of devotion to your mom. God rest her soul, with peace and blessings to the family.
