I am saddened by the death of Lena Meijer, my oldest friend at 102.
What a fine woman she was. One day I wrote her a note inviting her to a tea group I’d started in Grand Rapids. It consisted of several of my friends that didn’t know each other before. Soon we bonded into a group that had tea together for nearly 30 years. I told Lena about it, said we didn’t want anything from her (I was sure many did) and she quickly joined and brought her best friend. We celebrated her 95th and 100th. She hosted several and even Fred attended one.
