Lina was an inspiration to me for her kindness, fortitude, humor and devotion to her husband and family. Her loyalty and respect will always stay with me. I was blessed to have learned valuable life lessons from her in spoken and unspoken words - sometimes just an exchanged look or a smile was enough. I am grateful and a better person for having known such an honorable and beautiful soul. May all her family be comforted!
