Louella Carr emailed me yesterday informing me that my dear mentor Helen Solansky had died. I am assuming maybe on the 16th from what I can tell by the email.
I thought Linda, her daughter was a memeber of this group...Nancy do you know. I cant seem to find her email address in the members list.
Helen was a wonderful, wonderful woman. She broke me into Emergency Department nursing...I could go on for hours about the trully unselfish things she did as a person/nurse....but Helen was too meek to let me do that. She was a huge part of my life as a person and mostly as a nurse...

Mike Bradshaw, age 61, of Carrizo Springs, died yesterday, Jan. 19th, in the afternoon
while fishing at Port Mansfield with a fellow Game Warden at Port Mansfield.
The cause appeared to be a massive heart attack.
His wife, Debbie of C.S. survives him, along with children, daughter Leslie and family,
son Jake and family. His two sisters also, Jan Mitchell of Carrizo Springs (my
son's mother-in-law), and Kay of Castroville.
Mike's book is in the process of being published. It was in the making for years.
Mike had distinguished himself in the service
of Texas Parks and Wildlife.
He's retired and taken a job training new Game Wardens in the Valley while Debbie
had accepted a fine job in banking in San Antonio. They have kept their home in C.S.
