So many years of talking with Lena and helping her and Anna when I could. Wonderful neighbor and a wonderful woman that I also considered a friend. RIP Lena. You will be missed.

Lena was my mother's cousin and good friend. She was sharp and funny, and would always give you the real back story of family members and events. My siblings loved our visits with Lena and Anna over the years. Our hearts our broken. With deep gratitude that she was part of the family. Danny DiGregorio (Marion's son)
