Cena was a great friend. Cena was real. She was a champion for her faith . She loved her family. I’m sorry I didn’t get to say goodbye but I believe we will get to visit throughout eternity. To her family:
To remain in the hearts of those you leave behind, is to never die!

Cena was my cousin, she and her brother Early came to Alabama two years ago to support me in the death of my only child. Family has a way of coming together. She use to out do in the end by saying “I Love you More”
Cena you are loved more.

Ahhh, Cena my friend! I will so miss you and your big, open, caring heart! Our friendship began when we shared the Parish Nurse Course together, and it just grew stronger over these years. Thank you, my friend, for sharing your life with me. I am better for having known you. My sympathies to you, Bobby, and to all of Cena's loved ones.

What a sister-in-law you have been. We have all grown to love you so. Your wedding, we went in Leaf Swamp and picked cowcumber leaves to make a backdrop for your wedding. We oiled them and sewed them to chicken wired frame. So many wonderful memories. I love you. I know you are in heaven having coffee with Mama,Daddy and Mona. Surprise! Mama pulled Daddy there too.

Cena & I met in 5th grade in Greenwood, Mississippi. We reconnected a few years ago through Facebook & soccer. She was a faith-filled, loving & beautiful lady and friend. She was so proud of her family and fought hard to stay as long as she could. Our Lord whom she loved and leaned on surely greeted her with a big, long, deep hug. I miss her. I’m so sorry for your loss... and mine.
