    I am so sorry for your loss, but content to hear that Lena is in a safer and painless place. It was a joy for everyone she knew to have her on earth, and now everyone in heaven with her can experience that same joy. She was not only a great grandmother to my daughter, but a wise person she looked up to and was always happy to see. Lena and the Smith/Coapstick family are in my prayers.
