    To the family of Lena Mae,
    We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Lena Mae had such a sweet spirit and a beautiful smile. I remember when Lena Mae and my mother, Joan Irwin, played for church at Antioch. Lena Mae played the organ and mother was on piano. It was special worship time to have them play together. Wish we could be there to convey our condolences in person but we’re still in Florida. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
