Ryland Taylor, George "Red" Taylor; two sisters, Betty Seay, and Louise Thompson. A special thanks to Linda and Henry Goode, Shirley Ragland Stanley, the staff of Appomattox Health and Rehabilitation Center and the Hospice Staff for their love and care of Helen. Instead of a memorial service, Helen's wishes were to consider making memorial donations to the Kidney Foundation of the Virginias, 2601 Willard Road, Suite 103, Richmond, VA 23294, in memory of her son.
