To the loving family of Lena: we were so shocked to hear of Lena’s passing. We met her many years ago at Superstore. We always talked together about life, health and family matters. She deeply loved and was committed to her whole family. She was a a warm, caring helpful and truly lovely lady who always put the needs of others before her own. She bravely faced many battles and offered inspiration to others. She will be deeply missed by so many.

To the entire Romeo family and the Crupis
I have known Lina my entire life and she has always made time to say hello and ask how our family is doing .When our dad was sick she made time to come and see him before he passed away. Our dads looked like brothers the same smiles and had some features. We we’re taught the right things for our lives now life has changed everyone is so busy.I know Lina will eat peace now and with her dad Joe
God bless each and everyone off you and know our thoughts and prayers are with each one of you at this very hard time
