The family wishes to thank Maria Danila and her staff for caring for Helene these past 10 months as well as the staff of Hospice of the Valley. They are truly angels here on earth.
Helene had many words of wisdom to share with all of us through the years and always ended our conversations with, “Be good to yourself dear.” Thank you for being so good to all of US sweet Helene. You will be sorely missed.
