Memories Timeline


  1. I love the bikes. This is how I remember her best at the soccer games. I always thought this is how I want to be when I grow up when she would ride up. Our thought and prayers to your family. She was truly special.

  2. To the Pena family, our deepest sympathies to you. The Bible tells us that \Absent from the body is presence with the Lord. Your mother has stepped out of grace into glory. IThess. chapter 4 says if we too die in Christ we will see each other again.

  3. “What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes part of us.” -Helen Keller . We so much enjoyed our time with Jenny, always sweet and caring and the maker of the best tamales on earth. Our sympathies goes out to her family and sincere condolences, Linda and Ethan
