Condolences for the family of “Janet M. Helm”

Condolence from Linda Hershey on October 25th, 2020 6:46 am

Miss Janet was the epitome of grace. She was firm in what she believed and a well full of love. She shared that love with family, friends and even strangers. She and her family provided and delivered Thanksgiving baskets every year to those less fortunate then she was. Miss Janet was rich not as the world sees rich, her riches are awaiting her in heaven. She volunteered as an usher and a greeter at church, doing so even when we knew she wasn’t feeling good. I will truly miss “Nanny” but I know I’ll see that beautiful smile again when I too get to Heaven.
