So sorry for your loss. Ena was always a kind neighbour with a huge smile. I will never forget the story she told us about happy hour. She stated, the doctor said, "It was healthy to have happy hour, it leads to a long life". I guess you were right Ena. Thanks for the invite to your happy hour. You will be missed.
