Lena was my Aunt. My name is Margaret Ann ( Hinch ) Craig.
I saw a lot of the family a few years ago at a family get together at Aunt Lena's house and it was so nice to see you all and be able to set and talk with Lena. I know Dad ( Troy ) loved her so dearly and made it a point to see her every time when he was in Tennessee. So sorry to hear of Aunt Lena's passing, but just know we all will be together in heaven one of these day's. I would love to hear from each of you when you have a chance to write. My email is bcraig830@verizon.net. May God be with each of you today as you put Aunt Lena to rest. Sending my prayers to you. Love Margaret
