Helena Jerolyn Pippins, Sept. 01, 1990 - Nov. 17th, 2007

The pictures that are about to follow, I made in the first few days after Helena's Pippins death. I have never placed them on the web (until now, two years later). I hope that they bring you some clarity and remembrance of those days after she passed, for those of you who know her. I can only hope that they provide you the same sort of comfort and power they give to me. They have helped me to process a period in my life that was hard to see at the moment. Or maybe it was hard not to see anything but it. I am not completely sure how one goes about processing and letting go of accumulated grief. However, I am learning quickly. I do know that this gift that has been given to me does help.

I also know that those of you who have been with Helena, my family and I, in physical, in spirit, and in prayer during these times are forever in my heart. I am so grateful to all of you out there. Thank you so much. I hope that you know your worth in the lives of other people.

Helen, you were as beautiful in death as you were in your physical life. That has been a great lesson to me. This lesson was reflected through the friends and family who I have heard, seen, and touched since your passing. I will live my life to you, and to the highest for all my days.

We love you Helena!

Thank you,
I love you,

Nicholas Pippins

Thank you!!

Helena, you were my best friend, my sister and my everything. I never will forget the times we shared, laughs we created together, and joyful feelings you brought to my heart. I love you so much, no pre-tense. I loved you then, I love you always. Your forever in my heart, and I in yours. Let us meet again, let us be together once again. I love you!
