In dedication to Elena…

Hello LOL families and friends!!!!

Last Sunday, Oct 19, our beloved mother, Elena, passed away.  My family and I take comfort in knowing that she is finally free of all physical pain and suffering.  She has now joined our Creator and just knowing this has eased our grief and loss.  We have prepared her journey and with God’s grace and blessings, Mama received her last rites on Saturday.  What a wonderful send off gift!!!  I thank you for all the prayers and thoughts that you have bestowed upon her and our family during that eventful day on October 22, 2011 up until this moment. THANK YOU for being there for us.

As I reflect on our  LOL Events, I can’t help but think how much my mom influenced me in this endeavor.  I grew up witnessing her compassion and generosity to our family and the people around her.  She was a selfless person who just continued to give.  She was frugal to herself so that she can give to others.  She finds joy and love in giving.  She was my role model in LOL.  I became generous because I was first the beneficiary of that generosity. Please join me in dedicating our Christmas Feed the Homeless events to “Mader” (as she was lovingly called by our families and friends) and all deceased families and friends of LOL..
