Beautiful Tena. So many wonderful memories. We all loved her,Sharon. To the family, I send you love, peace, and joy in the knowledge of the faith that you hold dear. She was always a bright spot! (And Tena, don’t think we didn’t know about the pin you stuck in the arm of the couch!) Love to you all.

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of my lovely Aunt Tena. So much time has passed since I last saw her but my memories are vivid of how kind she was to me. She was always fun. She was my young fun aunt when I was a teenager a long time ago. May God bless you, with love from your niece Diana.
