|Helle & son Thor in her shop, Outdoor 45|
We thought it was strange when Sven & Helle
didn't come over from Denmark to stay at the Old House on
Leila's Mountain last October - they always came for a few days
before the November rains began. At the end of the month
Sven e-mailed to let us know that Helle had
been diagnosed with cancer in August &
was undergoing treatment.
Although they were both shocked,
Sven sounded pretty positive that the treatment would work.
Unfortunately, it didn't; Helle passed away yesterday morning.
And we have to say 'goodbye' to one of the most beautiful,
positive, enthusiastic & energetic women we have ever met.
Rest In Peace Helle, it was a pleasure to know you.
