I had the pleasure of working with Modena at the City of Little Rock for twenty years. A more positive thinking person I have never met. So sorry to hear of her passing but know that our loss is heavens gain - God Bless You Young Lady
I am so saddened to hear of Modena’s passing. She always had a positive message to share. I will cherish the gift she sent me upon my graduation from nursing school. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
We were so saddened to hear of Modena’s passing. She was an amazingly lovely lady. We send our condolences to John and his sister Dianne. Hopefully the memories of this beautiful lady will help console them in her absence. We know she’s up in heaven watching over everyone whose lives she has touched. God bless.
I worked with Modena at the City of Little Rock. She was always very kind and helpful. I pray for peace for Modena's family. May she rest in peace.
Our prayers are with John, Diane, and family. Modena was such a sweet and loving person. She will certainly be missed. John, you have always been such a loving and dedicated husband. I am sure that 48 years has provided you with many wonderful memories that will comfort you during this time. We love you.
I met Modena in March 1980 as we worked together in Word Processing with the City of Little Rock. She was a beautiful soul and her eyesight did not dim her Spirit. My deepest condolences to John and the entire family.
Modena is singing with Jesus now. Her vision is perfect. My heart hurts for John and family and her ladies at Church. She will be missed greatly. 😢
With heartfelt thoughts and deepest sympathy to you and family during this difficult time in the loss of Modena. My prayer is that you find memories to bring a smile and, friends and family to bring you comfort.
