My dear cousin Helen holds a special place in my heart. She was about a decade older than me, which elevated her in my eyes as a super-cousin; old enough to know much more than I did, and kind enough to be sort of an "extra sister". I remember summers after my family moved to North Carolina when Helen and Melvin would drive down to Spindale to pick me and my sister, Maxine, up to take us back to Black Mountain for a week or so. We got to spend time with Helen's siblings and her sweet children. It's was a marvelous time in my life and I will hold on to those memories forever. Helen was a kind, caring and loving woman. She treated everyone with love and respect. She made the world a better place by her presence.
