Helen and her children in Mississippi

I was living in a shack next door to Helen with my ex-wife's grandparents. I spent a lot of time with Helen and keep visiting her. The small child on the photo later died from malnutrition. The older girl was many years after strangled to death by her husband. Another daughter is now in prison. Helen has since turned to religion.
