|Let the memory of Helen be with us forever|
For everything there is a season, and a time for every mater under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted
On Wednesday evening, June 4, 2015 the Lord came by Universal healthcare nursing center in Oxford, NC and closed the eyes of Helen Beatrice Street.
