ìA heart broken and crushed spirit, O God, you will not reject.î (Psalm 51:17b) Iím sorry for your loss; may God provide you and your family with peace and comfort during this difficult time.
Shirley, we enjoyed knowing your Mom and admired her for many years here at LPL. Too, I felt your attentiveness was a sign of your love for love of her. Although I never met your sister, I know she, too, shared in Helen’s care (and kept her window looking lovely!). Our condolences to both of you. Dorie & John
How lovely that Mrs. Britton had such a wonderful full life. Love from all the Shimshack family to the Britton family.
Dr Kessaris and the girls will sure miss Ms Helen….
