Maggie and Family - when you said that Helen O'Dell was your sister, I didn't put it together until last night, I use to work with Helen at Harlem valley when she worked in Housekeeping for Mrs. Kay Hansen, who no one got along with, but I was Kay's Secretary, Helen was great with her employees she took, no guff from Mrs. Hansen, was always serious about her job. I know you will miss her but Maggie you know that you and your family can take strength in knowing that she is no longer in pain and she will be waiting on us when we all meet her in Heaven and she will have it cleaned spotless as well. Love in Christ, Donna Brunow
