Every time I gaze at the fig tree that Lena planted when she was our neighbor, I think of how proud she was of that tree. Her heartfelt rendition of “Santa Lucia” comes to mind frequently. Rest in peace, Lena.

I met Carmella at Commonwealth at Little Creek Rd and Granby St. she was the nearest lady and she could even make Wayne laugh at times. I admired her strength of character and her way she would critique the food. She made us laugh. I was glad to know that she was there when the move came and I could get together with the little group that cane from Little Creek. She was a great lady and my thoughts and prayers are with all of you during your time of loss. I’m glad I met her. She was one person I was glad came into my life. Just wish it were better circumstances. God bless all of you.
