I had the pleasure of meeting and seeing Lena many times at the restaurant where I use to work when she and her loving husband would come in for lunch or dinner. She was such a kind hearted person, and I am so grateful that I was blessed to meet her and chat with her about her children and grand-children. I will keep Ed and the rest of the family in my prayers. I am so sorry for you loss. - Amanda
