I just wanted to post a brief tribute to my great-aunt, Helen H. Jackson. She passed away Saturday evening, in her home. I was able to see her, sit with her, and say goodbye shortly before her death. I will always treasure that.
Aunt Helen was my 'other grandma'. She was kind, dignified, spunky, hospitable, independent, and the classiest lady I've ever known. She had absolutely impeccable taste, and could turn the smallest thing into a beautiful celebration. She has made a significant impact on my life. I love her very much, and will miss her terribly.
I can only hope to be more like her.

Goodbye, Aunt Helen. I love you. Rest well.
