I had the pleassure of knowing Mrs Helen for 18 years in which I worked for her for 15 years. It was always a pleassure to get to her house, she always had a hot cup of coffee waiting for me, we had our little converation before I started to work. She was so kind and always remembered my birthday! We shared beautiful things together, she saw me become a grandmother, she saw my grandkids amd always had beautiful thoughts towards them. I will miss her so much. Until we meet again Mrs Helen.
