Dear Linda, John and Family,
Sally and I send our Christian sympathy to you and your family upon the passing of Lena. Lena and George were good Christian friends and as their preacher we loved them. We want you to know we are sorry we can’t be at the services for we are in Florida. I appreciated Lena’s Christian spirit as I visited her in the Heartland Home there in Westerville. God bless you and we will be thinking of you on Monday during the service.
In Christian love,
Fred and Sally Albrecht.minister

Don and Joyce Smith - Feb 12, 2015

Sending prayers and sympathy to your family at the passing of Lena. She was very special to us and we loved her very much. We rented George and Lena’s downstairs apartment when we were first married back in 1974 and have wonderful memories of living there. They were always so good to us. We also went to Centerburg Church of Christ with them. I know you will miss her and her sweet spirit, but have the peace of seeing her again in heaven someday. Blessings in the Name of them Lord, Don, Joyce and Family
