Second mother

I had the pleasure of working with Malena for many years at RHD and she was like a second mother to me. She and Steve were at my wedding, and baby shower along with many other social functions. I visited her in October and we had a great time reminiscing and working on her jigsaw puzzle together. I had hoped to visit her again soon and am selfishly saddened by her passing. I take pleasure knowing that she still had the painting of the butterfly that I did for her many years ago. She spoke about her extended family and how much she enjoyed her time with everyone. May your memories bring you comfort as they do me at this difficult time. I am so sorry I did not get back to visit her again.
