Its been a few years since we used to celebrate Phil's birthday at Independence with a chocolate cake backed by Lena. But I have never had better chocolate cake with thick chocolate icing. And every March I think of those cakes and the wonderful cook who made them. ROYN.

Dear folks, my thoughts are with you in the passing of Miss Lena.
The picture of her is the way I last remember seeing her at Naomi Wahlgren's 100th Bday celebration. Very pretty and doing so well at that time. Your families are all a true testament to her life well lived.
I am sorry to not be able to attend. My hope for you children, Grands, and Greats is there will be many warm and pleasant memories. God Bless you all.
