Aunt Lena Mae was always laughing and making you laugh. Going through the submitted pictures, you can easily see what a great attitude on life she had and conveyed it to all. We will miss her greatly. She and Uncle Eddie can finally get back together and enjoy watching all of her family from above.
We love you!

Dear Joe and Family, So sorry to hear of your Moms passing.
She was a sweet, kind, and gracious lady. I always felt at home when I had the opportunity to be in the company of your parents. On the occasions of your employee parties at your home she always made me feel welcome. May you find solace and peace in your faith to know that she is in heaven reunited with your Dad. I remember when she had a conversation with me about her belief in Angels. Now she has joined them. Prayers and special thoughts go out to you and family,

Will miss you greatly 😇 Love, Rhonda Haynes

What a great tribute to a wonderful lady. I will always remember the friendship she had with my mother and the other fine ladies of Candlelight Oaks. They remained friends and still got together even though many had moved out of the subdivision. My deepest condolences to the family.
