Thank you for signing Rebecca H. Helms's Guestbook
So sorry to read of Becky’s passing. I remember her well as I grew up next door to her and the Hill family. I remember her mostly as the town doctors nurse. Always the nicest person. My sympathies to the family

I remember visiting with Lucy and Mildred Hill in my aunts back yard in Hookerton. My mama, Frankie Dail Morris would visit with her sister, Ruby Dail Avery, who lived in front of the Hills. Many nice memories in the 50’s. Willamina Morris Sugg.
