My deepest sympathy goes to Mrs. Foleys Family. I got too know Helen by working at Carthage Animal Hospital where she gave us the pleasure of taking care of Mikey. I groomed Mikey for several years and also looked forward in seeing Helen. They were my favorite clients. My heart is heavy. She was a wonderful woman and Heaven received another Angel.God Bless all of you, she will be missed
