I am thinking of and praying for the family and friends who are laying sweet Lena to rest today. She was such a nice, funny, spirited lady and I know she is taking great joy in meeting her Lord and Savior! Her smile will be missed.

I loved my Grandma Lena. Growing we did all our shopping at JC Penney and she was all over the place with her named being called constantly over the intercom for assistance. She was a hard worker, loved her family and she is with her Jesus. She has been talking about going to be with her Lord for a number of years now and so thankful knowing she is pain free and with her family who has gone before her.

Sending condolences to Lena's family. I knew her when she was a volunteer at Columbia Regional Hospital. What a lovely and delightful lady she was! May your memories of her bring you comfort at this time.
