First, My,.. Prayers and Sympathies to Lena's Children and entire Galindo Family. I have know Elena ( LENA ) as we all Called Her. I am her former Brother-in Law ( Victor Cornelio ) First,met Lena at Franklin H.S. During our Senior year,Lena was part of the In-Crowd with All the students, mainly from having an extended family attending F.H.S. Any, classmate, if you have a moment,locate your year book class 75 .On page #20 Their She is ,..Super Senior along with others Riding in the Homecoming Float-Pick up Truck bed. Wonderful,Timeless Moment that Lives On ! She married into the Lopez family ( Frank ) as I did ( Angelina ) that resided on the east side of Stockton.Mother, of Three Children. I can say without a Doubt ! How much she CARED for them ! In their family years , they experienced, All that California had to Offer. Travels,to the Sunny Beaches of Southern Calif. to the Mountain Regions- Lake Tahoe.in the pursuit of Good Fun Times for the kids. Lena, was ONE of many mother's that worked that ' Special Mom Magic " when money was tight,..Finding a way to ensure of having Birthday Celebration or Trip to a Theme Park with Family or friends. Her Corazone (Heart) was to her Kids. You, knew LENA was present at any gathering..for she had that ( UNIQUE LAUGH ) it could Not be duplicated. Based, on her laughing was a indication of the greatness of the event -Large or Small. This I Must Say ; I Never seen her, Super Angry at any persons / issues. She would be displeased. But, she found away to turn it into Humor, this is a special substance of one's character- Given gift, for this I always had a warm & soft spot for her.
She will be Missed Dearly,..by her Children,Family & friends. Now, she will be embraced by family members who sit next to our Lord Jesus Christ, who Love all his Children. Lena, would be Pleased with..GOD POEM > Foot Prints in the Sand.God has sent Angels to watch over your children. Rest in Peace in Peace..I am so Happy, I was able to share Good times with you Lena in our early years. I will see you again...No words can Fill what you were about in this World.

First of all I would like to send my deepest sympathies and condolences to the entire Galindo family and friends and Associates that knew Elena and we're close to her May our dear Lord Jesus Christ comfort you all sustain you all and keep you close during this time of losing a loved one... I've known the Galindo family ever since I was in elementary school ... Elena was a very nice person with a sweet smile and a very kind spirit she would always go out of her way to say hi to me and to see how I've been doing and we would catch up on a few things I believe now that she is with our Lord and savior happy and at peace with no tears and no pain just Everlasting Joy.... I once again express my condolences to the immediate family.... Sincerely Gary Torres Sr
