It has taken me a while to work up the courage to write something. Not something for others to read but to Lena. Although we hadn't know each other for very long, we had a connection that only a few would understand. That's the way it is with writers, with music lovers, with those of us who see deeper inside someone than the average person. Since the first night we met at Ron's, sitting around the fire and talking about life, law enforcement and music, there was an understanding. We share some common things that not many can relate to. I am so thankful for the time we knew each other. You quickly became great friend and one I will never forget.
I thank you for sharing your writing with me. I know it wasn't easy. However, it gave me a greater insight of the woman you were. I will forever cherish those talks. Walk easy now and enjoy the peace God has given you. Take those long walks with your Austin and smile for us left behind. We will all see each other soon enough. Love you my friend.
