  1. You were an amazing woman. I love you so much, rest in peace my beautiful aunt. I know grandma, papaw, and Clayton are happy to see you. You are already missed.

  2. It was an honor to take care of such a wonderful woman. Although I didn’t get to work with her my life is better that I had you to take care of. You will be missed.

  3. I had the pleasure of working with Trena for years at Fleshers Nursing Home. She was a wonderful, kind lady. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends.

  4. We had the pleasure of working with Trena for many years at Flesher’s. She was always upbeat, with a good sense of humor. Her co-workers and her residents liked and respected her. Our thought and prayers go to her family.

  5. I was so lucky to have had the pleasure of working with Trena & Clayton. I loved them both and they will always be remembered. To the family, you’re all in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. Trena was always a happy and gentle woman. She was a trusted LPN. Meaning, (as me being a CNA and working with her), if there was a problem on the hall or with a resident I could count on Trena to lend the ear to listen and to readily offer her compassion to care enough to follow through on whatever needs arose. Cheers to a wonderful Nurse. Thoughts and prayers to all the one’s that Trena has touched and loved. RIP.

  7. I remember her as a hear friend, we talked many times on the phone and in person. She was considerate and stern when the need arose. She will be greatly missed.
