Tributes to Helen Hill
wide eyed innocent
describes her so completely
joyful, happy, sweet, always smiling Helen
she was so happy to get back here...
when i saw her last Mardi Gras
they had a postcard campaign for folks to vote
should they come back or not?
they opened their hearts and arms to this city
they had so much to give
but not her life, why? what good is that?
life is so precious, so sweet,
so well used by some, like Helen,
so poorly understood by others,
like her killer, like all killers
they won't read this tribute
they wouldn't understand it
Helen, i loved you
i loved your innocence, your spirit
infectious happiness in your smile
fly away, Helen
we will gather together
we will try to take care
of your family
Helen touched all of us in Halifax who knew her - she was wonderful. This is absolutely sickening.
I am sick with grief. I'm not ready to say goodbye.
some of her friends from calarts and such are setting up a website in her memory.
We'll be making a photo album, links to her films, as well as memories and comments.
the website is helenhill.org
Please send photos, comments, memories, etc to memory [at] helenhill [dot] org
to contribute pictures and writing to the memorial.
People are placing notes to her, pictures and flowers, as a testament to her spirit, love and energy, on her steps.
