    My memory of Aunt Lena only recalls the best thoughts about the many childhood visits my family made to Wellsville/Blackstone in order to enjoy playing and fellowshipping with everyone. Aunt Lena’s reflective and measured demeanor will remain as a permanent memory. From my perspective, she possessed a very kind and enduring spirit.

    Of course I am saddened by the passing/transition of Aunt Lena. Fortunately I have so many wonderful memories of her with our grandparents, “Pete”, and family. Her kindness, humor, & voice will be greatly missed.
