Lena will be greatly missed by everyone. She was a joy to be around and had a heart of gold. I will miss you so much. Love you.

Lena will surely be missed by everyone. She was a joy to be around, and her smile would always leave you wondering just what she was up to...a real fun-loving individual with a heart of gold. And, my mom, Sallie Gee, thought the world of Lena; they are now together trading stories and LAUGHING. Prayers to Lena's family and friends for strength, hope, and comfort during this time of sorrow.
