    Dear Mark, Cheryl and families,
    I will miss Aunt Elene. I have such fond memories of visits to Elene and Olen’s home as a child! Aunt Elene was a gracious and attentive hostess and had a wonderful sense of humor. May God comfort you all and bring many happy memories to mind over the coming weeks and months.
