Coming Full Circle – “The Help” After 53 Years!

The Help has been a blockbuster hit over the last several weeks.  The heartwarming story of triumph tells the history of many of our families.  My own grandmother, Mrs. Maudie Lee Davis, age 83, still works for the same family after 53 years! Unlike the movie, in the early years of a very prejudice Louisiana, my grandmother is
