Grandma Helen

Richards Grandma Helen passed away on Saturday. She was 98 years old and we will miss her greatly. She lived a long life and we are so priveleged to have been a part of it and to have known this great lady. She was independant as can be right up until December, driving, cooking and climbing a steep flight of stairs every day to her bedroom. We know that she is happy as can be right now, reunited with those who have gone before her. She's been a widow for almost thirty years! We will miss her happy face, her delicious food, stopping to say hi when we ride the horses, her ever full cookie jar and her beautiful spirit. What a wonderful woman and example she was to all of us!

That's a great picture of Grandma. I feel the same sentiments as you.
