I was so blessed to be a cousin of Lena, I stayed with Lena quite a bit as a young child and I grew to love her like a second mom. Lena was a blessing to me as well as many, many others. I know our Lord has welcomed her with opened arms . She will be missed here on earth, hut she is so happy in haven.
