Carlena Phillps Richardson (Lena)
It's HARD to accept the death of a loved one; especially when you didn't have the chance to say goodbye; especially when the deceased was taken so suddenly and so shockingly at the prime of life and most especially when it seems like an irreplaceable part of your world is gone. The grief and the pain can be unbearable; you cry a river and your sorrow knows no end. You never really know what it's like until you are there yourself, but you look to God because he's the only one who can comfort you.
Death and indeed a death so sudden and painful like the death of our friend/sister Carlena (Lena) , makes us realize the brevity of life. We often take life for granted; too much so. Her death has made us sit down and reflect. It has made us take time to appreciate the loved ones in my life because you don't know what tomorrow will bring. It's made us put things in perspective.
Carlena Phillips Richardson our friend/sister/co-worker was the sweetest person you could ever meet. She was loved by all of us. We will use these funds to contribute to her funeral expenses or anything else the family may need. This was a sudden situation for them and we want to show them we are there for them. Carlena you are missed by all of us.
