Many find memories and good times as a kid. My family and the Wright family were friends and attended the church that JT, my dad Ed Bartram, John Moore, Lenard Givens, Bryan Howard and others started the Church of Christ in Hawkins. Zena was very active in that church. Great memories.
May God give you his peace to help you through your grief.

Zena was a sweet friend that I am going to miss. We always looked forward to seeing each other on Sundays and going to lunch after church. She always had great outfits and beautiful jewelry.
After she moved to Lubbock to be close to her granddaughters, we would call each other and share lots of laughs. Such a wonderful Christian lady. The family is in my thoughts and prayers during this sad time. Please contact me. Much love.
