Mary-Alena retired from Verizon after 20 years of service. Her favorite times were spending quality time with her family and friends. She loved the summer months, flowers, the beach and the countryside. A favorite pastime was shopping at home goods. Her greatest accomplishments were being a mom to Ellis and Shayna, striking gold in California where she found her love, Howard, and searching for and locating her birth family. She wishes to thank her friends for the best times. Her request is to reconcile with loved ones, because thats the only thing that really matters; Love!
