BETTER KNOW AN LF’ER : HELLEN AWINO

Posted by on 9/5/13 at 11:00am

“Awino. A name that has something to do with an umbilical cord wrapped around somebody’s neck at birth, but not at her neck… maybe it was her dad’s? It’s hard to keep all her stories straight, but I sure did enjoy listening to them while working with her over the last 8 months. I knew as soon as I started giving her random tasks that Hellen with two l’s was smart and talented enough to tackled anything that I threw her way, but what really made her a pleasure to work with was her wonderful attitude and glowing smile that we all came to love.  

Oh, and since David’s on vacation I’ll go ahead and say that I’ve heard several times that he will miss her shoes. Which ones? I’m not sure. Maybe the gold sparkly ones or possibly the bright orange ones… if my memory is serving me correctly.” – Tenna Florian
