    Serena was a good friend, all 5 years we were together in school. We both graduated from Jackson Elementary and in 1969 JHS... We had lunch a few years back, and got all caught up...I couldn't help thinking she was just the same as she was in school!! A quick smile, a strong belief in right and wrong, (and not afraid to say so!!) caring, interested, chatty, and still a really good friend, we prayed together. May God bless all who love her with His peace and thankfulness for the time well spent together. Cathy Spinetta Vanderford.

    Dearest Gilbert, and Gilbert and Serena's Family & Friends, We are so sorry about the loss of Serena. We fondly remember Serena's warmth, kindness and generosity when we visited. Her curiosity, enthusiasm & skill with her fabric work truly inspired me, Valerie. We send you love and keep you all in our thoughts.
