To one of my tribal elders who has touched my heart and spirit in more ways than you'll ever know. I enjoyed my one on one time going out to lunch or escorted her to a doctor's appointment. There's just too much to share, but I will certainly miss this gem. You always referred to me as "Stretcha's daughter" :)

Elder Helen personifies, integrity, determination and loved Mother Earth and all around her. She took care of them also including the birds.She shared her love for her children, grands family and the PEOPLE of the First lIGHT. She wondered why she was living so long as our conversation on the tribal bus she shared. I admired her because was a strong spirit as a woman and we need more like her. Helen may you rest in peace. Many blessings and hugs for your family as they continue on with life. love Cuz Joan Tavares avant- Granny Squannit
