To Tena's entire family, thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to you all in this time of grief. I have such special memories of Tena from HMI. She was such a kind, caring and special lady. She made many days brighter for me with her gentle and sincere nature. I was blessed to know her. I know she will be missed deeply here while we rejoice knowing the separation is just for awhile. May our loving Lord give you peace and strength while blessing you with comfort in knowing Tena is safe with him forever. Love, thoughts and prayers are with you.
