Tulsi Lauria says:

My dear sweet Lenora, you endeared yourself to me from the very first time I cared for you at LNC. You brought a smile to my face whenever I would see you, especially when you were in a feisty mood. There were many times I would sit at your bedside and we would just talk and laugh and hold hands. I will miss you, dear lady. There will never be another one like you. With much love, Tulsi

Arlis & Sarah Johnson says:

We were so saddened to hear of Lenora's passing. We did not know of her death until the memorial services were over and we are sorry we missed them. Lenora will always be in our memories and hearts as she and the Newman Family meant so much to the Johnson Family. What a loving and caring neighbor she was and such a positive influence on the Johnson kids. And we know the Newman Family can take comfort because of all the love she gave people and the wonderful and full life she lived. Please know the Newman Family is in our thoughts and prayers and we share your loss of a truly good and loving person.
