Grandma Lena, thank you for all your Rosary prayers you said to protect and guide us through the years. Thank you for showing me how to find strength in struggles and how to handle tough obstacles with a sense of grace and dignity. Your peace and determination to succeed through every battle now shines through me. Thank you for believing in your Faith. God gladly welcomed a woman of such class into his kingdom the day you passed. You helped me have a closer relationship with God and you always encouraged me to let his presence shine brightly. Positive thoughts and feelings radiate to every soul around you from the melody of your laughter. You are an example of great love and acceptance for all of us to follow and work toward in our daily life. I love you. May you dance daily with Grandpa in Heaven!

So many memories of my Aunt Lena, I don’t think life would have been the same without her. She was kind, a consummate lady, a wonderful hostess, who never wanted to leave anyone out, and just a soft, kind person. She raised such great people. Everyone of my cousins have her best qualities, and those of us who grew up around her were privileged to have done so. Rest In Peace dear Aunt Lena. Kiss my daddy for me.
