    Mrs. Daniel and our Mom, crafted ceramic pottery for many
    years. She was always so funny and we enjoyed being around her. We are praying for your family and hold many
    fond memories of Mrs. Lena.

    Mama Lena was one of our dearest friends. She treated us as family. She made our lives so much fun. We played cards, laughed, and then laughed some more. We are celebrating her life as one filled with Godliness, love, and kindness. She will live in hearts forever. We loved her so much.

    Loved “Dan” and Miss Lena! They were so sweet to me. I went to their home often and when I went on the job with Daddy, “Dan” would take care of me. They used to raise Boston Terriers and my family got two of them. I lost touch with the Daniels after my father died and I moved to Nashville. This news brought tears of sadness and joy to me. I am so glad she lived a long and I am sure beautiful life. My sympathy is with Miss Lena’s family. I know you will miss her!
