Mrs. Helen: From the first time I met you at 14 when my godmom brought me to your home, you were so kind. I remember you saying hun get yourself something to drink and then you said Cran who is this little red child with you. You had a spark about you but you didn't take any mess. Even when I would see you at Walmart you would say you were with Cran. You made sure I knew you remembered me. You will be truly missed. I know Mr. Sonny has welcomed you at the gates. Rest in Heaven.
