In the brief span of time I knew you, your selflessness, determination, and strength outshined the obvious physical pain you were enduring. You were such a strong person, that I never would have thought you were fighting a battle every single day.
You were a wonderful artist and person who wasn't afraid to speak your mind- something truly admired in class. I didn't get to know you well, but you were an amazing aspect to the class and an inspiration to us all.
You never let your sickness deter you, and your work and look on life will stay with us always.
We can all learn from you
Rest in peace Helen
