Helly

Back in the day, we didn’t have Facebook. There was no Twitter or Instagram, and even MySpace had yet to rise and fall. Instead we used to write blogs and forged our own social networks one link at a time. We would comment, and share memes and pictures, and build friendships.

Thinking back to those times, there was one person who stood out.

Helly was warm, witty and incredibly generous. She was sassy to a tee and a true southern belle. She shared stories of redneck pool parties, domestic disasters and workplace woes. She would always find time to comment and appreciate the good things in life, and sympathise when times were tough. The best stories though were the ones about her beloved chihuahuas and her adoring husband Alan, and there were plenty of those over the years.

If you look over at the list of posts on the right you will see a final entry in the Hellhole.

Rest in Peace Helly. You will be missed more than words can say.

I agree. Was saddened to learn we have lost her voice.
