I think we all find some comfort in knowing she's in a better place, and I wish I could be there with you all in remembrance and celebration of her life. ~Jeff Goodman Jeffrey Todd Goodman, November 11, 2010 I only got to visit with Lena a few times, but was always impressed by her cheerfulness and positive attitude. She always seemed more concerned about other people than herself and didn't want everything to be about how she was feeling. I was overwhelmed by the love I saw between Lena and Leonard after all the years they had been together. They still expressed humor and tenderness toward each other as part of their daily routine, and really enjoyed each other's company. Two equally beautiful people in a perfect match. I'm glad they got to celebrate their 63rd anniversary just recently, and know that Lena is watching over all her loved ones, waiting for each individual renunion when it comes. Phoebe Elizabeth Anne Earles, November 11, 2010 I have good memories of when Lena and Leonard lived next door to my Neenie and Granddad in Lefors. I liked visitng them when we stayed there for our summers. Wesley Brian Earles, November 11, 2010
