Helen...I have got to know you for years because you always want to get your nails done and Im so proud of being a guy nail tech whom you totally trust. We were being friends and you always supported me on my study and even my relationship issue. Im so sad that I am not gonna see you and hear your laugh and listen to your stories anymore but Im happy you are with God now. I wish I could know of your condition earlier so I could provide support. I miss you so much. You are one of kindest people I fortunately know and be a part of my life. I love you Helen. May we meet again.

Helen was a very dear friend and co-worker who I will miss tremendously. She always had a smile on her face and was a hard worker. She was a caring person. No one will be able to fill the void that she has left. RIP my sweet friend!
