Alena was my classmate. She was a very pleasant person to know, sorta quiet person. Always glad to help you (with a smile) when she worked at CVS. I always wanted her to wait on me when I would go to the pharmacy, sure missed her when she was no longer there. I think she enjoyed our class get-togethers. I am sure she has left behind many fond and loving memories with her family. Keep Alena in our hearts and she will always be with you. God bless you and yours!

Alena was a classmate of mine. She was always soft-spoken and friendly to everyone she met. I always enjoyed talking with her at the CVS. My most sincere sympathy and prayers go out to the family. Craig Main, Arizona.
