Aunt Bina and Uncle Bob were always on our list of relatives to visit when we came to Texas on vacation from California. We enjoyed their hospitality and wonderful stories Aunt Bina told of her family while growing up. Aunt Bina always made sure Uncle Bob would take our kids for a ride in one of their antique cars, what a treat for our boys, they would talk about it all summer! Such a loving couple, they will be greatly missed.

What a wonderful woman taking care of God's people for so many years. My mother, Mary Sarna, helped Albina make slippers for adults at Parkland and enjoyed great satisfaction by helping those in need. Albina will be greatly missed by all. She made the world a better place because of her talent and kindness. Indeed, she was a beautiful lady inside and out.

May the angels escort her to the gates of heaven.

Bob and Bina were great friends to my dad, Jimmie Davie, while both were enjoying their antique car hobby. I remember Bina as a great hostess and cook. The world will miss her.
