It was such an honor to have the opportunity to take care of Helen in her last years. I started taking care of her on 2017. I loved listening to her talk, and always enjoyed taking in her meal trays. She always was so excited about getting her meals, that is until she saw how much and insisted that I take some too. Everyonce in awhile when I'd go in shed ask me to stop for a second and play a hand or two of cards. She was a sweet, loving lady. I will miss her dearly. My condolences to you Bill and your entire family. Caleb Brown, Altercare Zanesville.
