I am truly sorry for your loss.  I have very fond memories of Helen as a little girl and going to see Dr. Holcomb.  I remember when she would come out and call my name seeing her in the nostalgic nurses cap, her red lipstick and big smile on her face. I know she was an inspiration to me going into healthcare as I am sure she was to so many other as well. Cherish your wonderful memories of her.

We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

I can't tell you how many shots this lady gave me over the years and she was always as gentle as she could be! I loved talking to Helen in and out of the office. Always a smile on her face! Will surely miss her.

Dear Friends,
My heart is saddened at the loss of precious Helen.I would say she touched many patients spiritually as well as meeting their physical needs. She was a strong woman of faith which allows me to rejoice because I know she is with Jesus this moment. The lonely places in our hearts will remain. Grief doesn't go away...it changes. I will be praying for each of you that the Lord who carried Helen HOME, is ready to calm the seas around you. May God bless you
