    My heart continues to ache and I cannot help but cry each time I see, hear, or read anything about you. I remember all the times I have had with you and your family and I will cherish them always. I know I have grown apart from you and your family, but that never changed my love for you guys! I am sad that our children never knew each other and that we didn’t come around more for that. How I would have loved for you to meet my mini as well. Even though we only have one picture of us together, I have many, many more in my memory and heart. I never remember a dull or boring moment between us because our goofiness exceeded it all! My heart broke the day I found out you were gone and the tears continue to fall, but I will keep your smile in my thoughts because that is the way I want to remember you. I hope my daughter and I will be able to get close to your children. This way I can tell them how amazing their mother was❤ Lena, the love will never die!

    So many deep conversations about the stuff we both have been through. No amount of words could ever fill the void I feel. To know you are with your dad again give me some sort of peace. You were taken way too soon. I love you Lena. Fly high sweet girl.

    Oh Lena. I don’t know how I will ever get over losing you. It kills me thinking about the last time we spent together. I wish I would’ve loved on you a little longer and tighter. I will always cherish every moment we had together, even tho we didn’t take near as many pictures as we should’ve during those times…I remember them in my heart and will never forget them. Thank you for being the best/strangest friendships I’ve ever had. It was something I think only Vinny understood..or tried to lol. One of our last conversations was how strange it was and how it would’ve torn any normal people apart. I love you sweet girl. You will forever be a part of my soul 💜

    My heart is broken for you all and those two beautiful babies. Lena was a strong beautiful woman I’ve known her for years and I would never have anything bad to say about her. She nothing but perfect in my eyes. I’m so sorry she had to leave this awful world. But I see it as she no longer in pain or have to stress this hard life anymore. She will never be forgotten I forever love you my hunniebunnie Lena.

    I haven’t seen you in years, but the last time I did, you were a sassy teen, and you were exuberant, free, wild. You’re a beautiful soul, and my heart breaks that you’re not a part of this world anymore. We need more angels like you, not less. I hope your babies always know that you loved them, because anyone could see you so deeply did. I’m sad for your mom, because my daughters are growing up, and I can’t imagine one of them leaving me like this. Lena, you are so loved.

    I did not know Lena but from the memories shared by family and friends it’s obvious that she was very special and loved by many. Dealing with the death of a loved one is so very hard to do. I hope that you find comfort in God’s promise to restore our dead loved ones to life here on the earth, never having to say goodbye again. Through God’s Kingdom, Jesus will make this earth the problem-free paradise that his Father intended it to be. Until that time let your memories take you back and make you smile, let prayer bring you peace and comfort, and the support from your family and friends help you through this very difficult time.- Matthew 6:9-10; Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11, 29

    Our hearts are heavy over the loss that all of you have suffered. Our loving Creator wants to comfort you with his promise that he made through his son, Jesus, who promised, “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) May this promise that Lena will live again bring you comfort and hope.

    Our hearts are heavy over the loss that all of you have suffered. Our loving Creator wants to comfort you with his promise that, “God…will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3,4) May this promise bring you comfort and hope.
